More than 108,000 people in the United States are awaiting a life-saving organ for transplant with 14 more people being added to that list every day. Every week, over 100 people die due to the lack of available organs. In the state of Vermont there are only 289 people signed on as a volunteer organ donor registrant, which is less than .001% of the total population in Vermont. Donate Life Vermont hopes that this initiative will bring awareness to this important cause.
“More than ever, there is an urgent need for organ donors in the state of Vermont” stated Jeffrey Orlowski, chief executive officer for CDT. “With the new online donor registry, Vermonters can quickly and easily make the decision to save lives through donation. We hope that the added incentive provided by local Vermont businesses will help bring awareness to this important cause.”
The Donate Life online registry is a confidential database of individuals who have made the decision to donate their organs and/or tissues to those that are in need at the time of their death. Each organ and tissue donor has the potential to save or enhance the lives of over 50 people. Vermont residents can join the Donate Life Vermont Donor Registry atwww.DonateLifeVermont.org .
