People can register to be an organ donor and save lives.
One organ donor alone can save eight lives, and one tissue donor can improve up to 50 lives.
That’s the message of the newly-launched #bethegift campaign by New Mexico donor services.
Register Online: Individuals can transform themselves into a “gift” by visiting www.BeTheGiftToday.org and registering as an organ and tissue donor. It’s simple, fast, and free. If an individual is already registered, they can join the movement by posting on social media with the #BeTheGift campaign, encouraging friends and family to register online and #BeTheGift that saves and improves lives.
• Wear the Big Red Bow: Participants can take a photo or selfie and add the campaign’s virtual Big Red Bow to their online images using the filter app at www.BeTheGiftToday.com. The graphic can be sized and moved for the perfect fit.
• Share Pictures: Individuals can post their photos with #BeTheGift filters to social media, use the #BeTheGift hashtag, and challenge their friends.
