We will all have to wait at some point this holiday season. We might wait in line to purchase the perfect gift, wait with anticipation for Santa’s arrival on Christmas morning, wait excitedly for our favorite cookies to come out of the oven or anxiously await the chance to see family and friends.
When you find yourself waiting, I ask you to consider those who are waiting for something that may never come. Think about the 112,000 Americans who wait for the “Gift of Life” through an organ transplant. Most will wait months or years and every day 18 men, women and children will die waiting.
They wait for a donor’s generosity to let life go on.
You don’t have to wait to make a difference. All you have to do is register as an organ and tissue donor. It won’t cost you money, but it will give hope to those waiting for a second chance at life.
Don’t wait. Sign up as an organ and tissue donor today at www.lifelineofohio.org, at your local BMV or by calling 800-525-5667.
CEO, Lifeline of Ohio
