I thought it was important to let you know that I want to help someone else to live after my death by donating my organs.
Every year hundreds of people die while waiting for a transplant. If I can, I would like to help.
I have therefore added my name to the NHS Organ Donor Register which is a list of people willing to become donors should the situation ever arise.
I registered my wishes via the UK Transplant website. You can find out more about organ donation on their site.
Thanks to thepaintedone for pointing this one out. I’ve been meaning to register for this for years, and never gotten around to it. Never occured to me to check if I could do it on-line. So now I have, and I encourage you to do that same, and paste the message above into your own journal to encourage others.
Edited to add: And, of course, let your next of kin know you’ve done it, as well…
