SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- More than a hundred thousand people nationwide are currently waiting for an organ transplant. In fact an average of 18 people per day die due to a lack of available organs for transplant.

According to their website members of the X50 are "just a bunch of marketing students trying to make the world a better place by saving lives--50 at a time." Last year they signed up nearly a thousand new organ donors and this year they are hoping to top that.
For the second year in a row marketing students at Missouri State are rallying for a cause.
