We’ve been talking a lot about our Kickstarter campaign for In A Moment: The Johan Aspelin story, so we’re going to completely change gears and talk about a different kind of donation. Are you an organ donor? If yes, fantastic! Organ donation is literally the gift of life! And you can donate more than just organs. You can also donate your eyes and tissue.
Did you know that there are currently 123,381 Americans waiting for an organ? Did you know that 18 people die each day waiting for an organ? And if you and you alone donated your organs, you could save up to 8 lives. 8 human lives! That number is astounding. Johan Aspelin, the baby our documentary is based on, had his organs donated through Donate Life America. At the age of 3 months, Johan provided a future for a young baby girl that wouldn’t have had a chance otherwise.
We aren’t here to pressure you into being an organ donor. Everyone has his or her own beliefs and we are certainly not one to judge. But if you have nothing against organ donation and you haven’t signed up yet…what are you waiting for? Now is the time!
Here’s some information on how to sign up for organ donation:
