Organ Donor Enrollment Day is Thursday, October 7th, 2021
BRING HOPE, SAVE LIVES
Organ Donor Enrollment Day is an initiative committed to bringing hope to the nearly 10,000 New Yorkers currently waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. We do this by educating communities on the importance of organ donation and by encouraging willing individuals to sign up as registered organ donors.
This year’s Organ Donor Enrollment Day will be held on Thursday, October 7th, 2021. We are partnering with you to leverage your existing networks to spread the word and sign up new organ donors through:
- Social media platforms
- Educational webinars
- Enrollment drives
We look forward to partnering with you this year!
Getting started is easy! Here's what you need to do:
- Step 1: Register as an individual or team
- Step 2: On October 7th collect enrollments by calling and emailing friends, posting on social media, holding an enrollment drive or other creative ways
- Step 3: Collect as many enrollments as possible
- Step 4: Enjoy yourself and feel good knowing your work is saving lives in the future
Create a team
Form a group of leaders within your organization, or with friends and family to get everyone excited about Organ Donor Enrollment Day. When you register your team, select a name. The team name can be your organization’s name, in honor of someone touched by donation or any description that best fits the people in your group. As team leaders you will ensure that emails are distributed, social media posts go up, reminders are sent, etc. You can even challenge another group in a friendly competition to see who can get the most enrollments!
