April is Donate Life Month
Once again, it’s been awhile since I’ve made my way to my blog. And to be honest, I really miss it and wish I could find more time but three kids with busy schedules and a busy job keep me going pretty consistently. I love the craziness but only wish I could sneak 30 minutes every so often to keep up on my blogging.
Thankfully, my work gives me a lot of satisfaction and quite often, I’m able to mix my passion for great causes with my work life. Most recently, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Gift of Life Michigan on a donor drive 2010 campaign. I’ve always been a strong supporter of organ donation–can’t think for one minute why I need my organs when I’m not here anymore. I truly can’t imagine what it’s like for all the people waiting for organs and I’ve spent quite a bit of time on the Gift of Life Facebook page reading some pretty amazing stories.
What’s interesting to me is that so many people don’t understand that you cannot just sign the back of your driver’s license anymore. The online registry is the best way to make sure you are listed and recognized as a potential organ donor and it takes about 5 seconds to get through the process. April is Donate Life month–the perfect time to sign up on the registry so if you haven’t already, do it now. The 3,000 people in Michigan waiting for organs thank you.
