The organ and tissue recovery organization Gift of Life is celebrating the passage of legislation authorizing the plate, which Lt. Gov. Brian Calley will sign in Lansing this afternoon. Proceeds from the plate will promote organ, tissue and eye donation and the Michigan Organ Donor Registry.
The license plate, which will bear the Gift of Life logo, will be available after June 30 for $35 above the standard cost of a Michigan plate. Of that, $10 will go to the new Thomas Daley Gift of Life Fund, named for the son of State Rep. Kevin Daley (R-Lum). Thomas Daley died last year at 23 following a tree-cutting accident, and his organs helped save the lives of four critically ill patients in Michigan.
