Whether you say, water or wooder; prefer a trip down the shore or out to the mountains, or think soda is really called pop, we can all agree that our differences make us unique, and we’re stronger when we come together and work towards a common goal.

Knowing that just 1 person can save up to 8 lives as an organ donor, PA Donor Day will take place on January 8, 2021 (1/8/2021) and encourage Pennsylvanians to take just a moment to register, knowing they could someday save someone’s life.

We’re challenging Pennsylvanians to come together to support organ donation and help create a unifying moment across the state where we all work to educate and encourage our family, friends, neighbors, colleagues and others to register as organ donors.

LAST YEAR, NATIONAL ORGAN DONORS MADE
39,000
LIFE-SAVING TRANSPLANTS POSSIBLE
___________
YET
More than 7,000

PEOPLE IN PENNSYLVANIA ARE STILL WAITING FOR THEIRS

Your decision to join us will have a momentous impact on the lives of so many Pennsylvanians, many who work or live in your community. Please join us!

Want to Get Involved?

Even if you’re already a registered donor, there are plenty of ways for you to participate. See below for just a few ideas to get started:

  • Register to be an organ and tissue donor and encourage your friends, family and coworkers to do the same.
  • Read up and help debunk common myths and misconceptions around organ and tissue donation.
  • Spread the word about the importance of organ and tissue donation with your friends and family.
  • Follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
  • Share a post on social media about why organ and tissue donation is important to you – make sure to include #PADonorDay and tag us!
  • Donate to the Governor Robert P. Casey Memorial Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Trust Fund.
  • Ask your employer to recognize and hold a PA Donor Day virtual event or send a simple email to your colleagues letting them know about the day.
  • Mine for stories within your organization. We suspect someone you work with has been touched in some way by organ and tissue donation and would be willing to share their story with others. Or take a look at the incredible stories on the DLPA site. 
  • Invite a representative from Gift of Life in Eastern PA or CORE in Western PA to speak virtually to your organization.
  • Volunteer with the Center for Organ Recovery & Education, Gift of Life Donor Program, or local hospital.
