February 14 is National Organ Donor Day

Observed each year on February 14th, National Organ Donor Day is a day to increase awareness about organ donation and the lives that can be saved.   In the United States, there are more than 120,000 people waiting for a life-saving organ donation.

National Organ Donor Day focuses on five different types of donations:  Organs – Tissues – Marrow – Platelets – Blood.  Many nonprofit health organizations sponsor blood and marrow drives and organ/tissue sign-ups across the nation. Approximately every two seconds, there is someone in the U.S. who needs blood, which translates to the need for over 41,000 daily donations.
