Illinoisans Called Upon to Register as Organ & Tissue Donors in Final Push to Reach Campaign Registration Goal
Date:4/1/2008

Coalition embarks on "Drive for 3.5" in celebration of National Donate Life

Month

CHICAGO, April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of April being National Donate Life Month, Donate Life Illinois and Secretary of State Jesse White are urging Illinoisans to take 30 seconds to register in the state's new organ/tissue donor registry and help the 4,700 Illinoisans currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant.

"I am overwhelmed by the number of Illinois residents who commit to saving other people's lives by joining the state's organ and tissue donor program," said White. "This Donate Life Month, I encourage everyone to make sure they join the new registry and help in our effort to give the thousands of people on the transplant waiting list the greatest gift of all -- the gift of life."

National Donate Life Month is designated for hosting events at businesses, colleges, hospitals and communities throughout the state to educate the public about organ/tissue donation and encourage donor registration.

This April, Donate Life Month coincides with the completion of Donate Life Illinois' initial 18-month campaign goal of registering 3.5 million Illinoisans in the state's new registry by April 2008. To reach this goal, Donate Life Illinois is leading the "Drive for 3.5," a statewide effort to meet and surpass the campaign's registration goal before the end of the month. Currently, more than 3.2 million residents have joined the new registry.

"Surpassing 3.5 million registrations in just 18 months is a fantastic accomplishment, but there is still more work to be done," said Dave Bosch, chair of Donate Life Illinois. "There were over 6 million people signed up in the state's old donor intent registry which required additional witnesses for you to become a donor. If these people have not registered since January 1, 2006, they need to re-register in the new registry to ensure their wishes as a donor are
