Have you checked the box?

Hey, Minnesota! Let’s raise the bar.

There are 100,000+ people in the U.S. currently waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant, and every 9 minutes a new person is added to the waiting list. We’re raising the bar and asking Minnesotans who are not currently registered to say yes to donation!

One registration for every person on the waiting list.

Today there are 2,300 Minnesotans waiting for a lifesaving transplant. Let’s help them beat the odds and add 2,300 new people to the donor registry. It’s a small gesture with a big impact – one organ donor can heal more than 75 lives!

A little heart makes a big difference!

Did you know one person can save more than 75 lives? Have a heart to heart about organ, eye and tissue donation and join the donor registry today!
