2.67+ million USans died in 2017. A record 10,000 were organ donors -- but that's still just 3/8 of 1%.

To me, that's disgraceful. I became an organ donor the day after I was legally allowed in 1980.

If you can't be a 1%'er with your bank accounts, be one with your heart (or lung or liver). Be a hero! Save a life!

I am a registered organ donor. Glad to do my part when I am dead. Boy that sounds wrong. Though I have to say when I saw the title my first though was "be an organ donor"? Is this about kidneys or liver or bone marrow, something you can do while alive? Mainly my overly analytical mind went into over drive on the sense that, to be the kind of organ donor you are referring to, one cannot be, and be. At the same time. Follow? ;) Though, one has to consent to their organs to be donated after they die while they are still alive, naturally.

So, I have consented and plan for my organs to be donated after all my body has ceased functioning for me, which by extension has ended my conscious existence here on Earth. Unless maybe we are uploading conscious onto computers by then.

Anyways, humour aside (well, humorous to me, I like my funky brain), yes, please register to be an organ donor, and save lives.
