Giving the Gift of Life During the Holidays
Date:12/19/2007

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The holidays are a time when many of us are focused on gifts and giving. But there are thousands of people in this community who are hoping to receive the most important gift of all this season - the gift of life.

This past year, more than 1,000 people in our community have already received a life-saving transplant, thanks to the generosity of many donors and their families. But even more continue to wait - specifically, close to 5,400 people in this region alone, joining the 100,000 patients who wait nationwide.

Gift of Life Donor Program - the organ procurement organization for eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware - urges you to help give hope during the holidays and register as an organ and tissue donor. You can now give the greatest gift online as well. It's simple, quick, and just one donor can save or enhance the lives of up to 50 people.

In Pennsylvania and Delaware, residents who want to support organ and tissue donation can act immediately instead of waiting until you renew your driver's license to add the donor designation to their license. Through the two state Web sites, http://www.donatelife-pa.org and http://www.donatelife-de.org, residents with a driver's license or state I.D. card have the ability to go online to a secure page within the state's Department of Transportation Web site to add the donor designation to their record immediately.

In New Jersey, you can also log onto http://www.donatelifenj.org to get more information about donation, as well as sign up to be alerted when the state's online registry is ready.

Regardless of where you are, it's also important to talk with your family and friends about your decision to donate, so they can understand your wishes
