Register as an Organ Donor: A Transportation Dept in the US Reminds License Holders

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) reminded those with driver's license and identification card to spend a few minutes online to register as an organ donor can help another person live a fuller, longer life.

Leslie S. Richards, Secretary, PennDOT, said, "Potential donors considering adding the organ donor designation to their driver's license or identification card do not have to wait for their renewal notices to take action. Many Pennsylvanians have already taken the time to potentially save a life by generously volunteering to become organ donors."

More than 46% of Pennsylvanian driver's licence and identification card holders are registered organ donors.

Driver's license and identification card holders can support organ donation programs by donating $1 to the Robert P. Casey Memorial Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Trust Fund at the time of donor application and/or renewal. The funds are used to educate and promote awareness of the organ donor program through non-profit organizations like the Center for Organ Recovery and Education and the Gift of Life Donor Program.
