Is meeting Elizabeth May on your #bucketlist?

Every three days someone dies in Ontario because the life-saving organ transplant they need is not available, yet less than 25% of Ontarians have registered their consent to be a donor. It’s really surprising, and it’s not good enough. Especially for the 1,500 people in our province waiting for organ transplants and the thousands more waiting for tissue transplants.

Our organization is committed to doing our part. We’re asking every member of our organization to register their consent for organ and tissue donation – it can be done online in just two minutes, and you can do it right from this page. We’re also asking them to ask their friends and family to register as well.

Registering to be a donor might be the greatest gift you ever give. If you’d hope a live-saving transplant would be available for your friends and loved ones, please register today.

This past Sunday, members of the Barrie Green Party heard from Sandra Holdsworth, from the Trillium Gift of Life Network. She reported that Barrie has a high rate of organ donor card signage, but it’s not 100%.

We have made a commitment to getting 50 new people to register as organ donors. I hope you can help us out, and visit our campaign, so that we eliminate someone dying every 3 days in Ontario.

And please share this with your friends and contacts!

THINK BIG. Expect Better.
