Have a Little Heart, the first official program of its kind in the U.S., allows for patrons to receive a purchase discount at participating businesses by showing their donor designation, (e.g., the red heart on their driver's license or identification card) at the point of sale. For those not yet registered, it offers an incentive to register and promotes conversations about organ, eye, and tissue donation. Mayor Schieve, a kidney recipient, introduced the idea and helped develop the program.
