Canada's first National Organ & Tissue Donor Registration Drive!
For almost a decade Live On has been increasing awareness and registrations for organ and tissue donation in Canada. Working with provincial agencies, local media, corporate and community partners, we have successfully increased public awareness of the importance of registering as an organ and tissue donor.
While we have made a difference and 95% of Canadians say they support organ donation, only 20% have registered their decision. Currently approximately 4600 Canadians are on the waiting list and sadly, hundreds die every year waiting.
This year, we have partnered with the Canadian Transplant Association and RE/MAX to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation, with the social media campaign #LiveOnRegithon. We will be encouraging Canadians to Make-A-Pledge of support and register as an organ & tissue donor. It's a Pledge to Save Lives! By working together, we can increase the number of registered donors in each province, and encourage every Canadian to have a conversation with their loved ones about organ donation. Check out the #LiveOnRegithon Make-A-Pledge to Save Lives event.
