Spreading the word

Organ donation seems to be getting a lot of press/notice lately. A few things I've seen:
--Two "Donate Life" stickers on cars (if you want one, email me! I have them!)
--the man next to me at the ballet on Friday was wearing a "donate life" wrist band.
--Organ donation was highlighted in a special section of the Dispatch over the weekend. Buckeye football coach Jim Tressel had an event with three athletes who happen to be organ recipients. One of them said that the 98,000 people currently waiting for a donor represent roughly the capacity of Ohio Stadium. So if everyone in the 'shoe on a Saturday watching the Buckeyes was organ donor...we might be doing better in the numbers race.
--And my mug has been plastered around Columbus TV and internet sites are part of Lifeline's new awareness campaign. It's an old picture, though. :)

Of course, if you are NOT yet a donor--you know what to do. Or go here.
