Add a Banner on Your Website

If you have a website and want to make a stand for the more than 100,000 Americans waiting for a lifesaving transplant, you can embed one of our Donate Life digital banners on your personal or company site. Each image features a recipient of a lifesaving transplant, as featured in our Stories of Hope!

Take Your Support for Donation on the Road

The DMV remains the top registration point for donation – and if you list your donation decision on your license, why not do the same on your license plates? Currently there are organ donor license plates available in many states.

Don’t see your state on the list? Each state has specific requirements to meet in order to offer a specialty license plate. If you are interested in having a Donate Life specialty plate in your state, contact your Donate Life State Team Leader. They may already have an application process or petition started in order to achieve this goal.

Online Educational Tools

These are basic learning tools that give an overview of donation and transplantation. Most are appropriate for audiences middle school age and older.

Transplant Living Website

This website serves primarily as a resource for those going through the donation and transplantation process as a recipient or living donor. It contains information on what to expect before and after a transplant, as well as what you should know when making the decision to be a living donor.

Go Recycle Yourself
