A flash mob is defined as: "A large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public space, perform an unusual action for a brief period of time, then quickly disperse." The goal was to attract attention for the need for organ donations and to give Kent State students and others the opportunity to register.

Nationally 18 people will die each day waiting for an organ. In Ohio, 214 people died while waiting for an organ transplant in 2006.

The Kent State public relations students are participating in the Do It Now College Challenge, a statewide competition among 13 colleges and universities in Ohio sponsored by Donate Life Ohio. The goal of the campaign is to recruit 400,000 new organ donors in Ohio.

"Often, this is a subject that people don't want to think about it," says Julie McKinney, a junior public relations major and PRKent Do It Now team member. "Ultimately, organ donors save lives. We want to educate people about organ and tissue donation. And, hopefully, we can successfully encourage people to become donors."

Becoming a donor is simple. Ohio residents can sign-up while renewing their driver's license or visit the PRKent Do It Now team's Web site at http://www.doitnowohio.org/kent.

A single donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and improve the lives of up to 50 people through tissue donation.

Kent State's campaign to increase organ donors was developed in the fall 2007 Public Relations Campaigns class and is being implemented by a team of Kent PR students throughout spri
