Blogging daily in April in recognition of National Donate Life Month. Please register as an organ donor and help to raise awareness about this lifesaving gift.

Do you have trouble figuring out what to give someone? Do people ask you what you want for your birthday and you want something more meaningful than a sweater or box of chocolates? Consider giving a priceless gift by signing up to be a potential organ and tissue donor. If someone asks you what you want, ask him or her to register as a donor.

For those who want to give more while they are still alive, consider giving money to your favorite charity or local transplant organization. Some charities sell greeting cards—something to consider if you send holiday cards. When people ask you what you want for your birthday or Christmas, ask them to make a life-sized gift. Can you think of a bigger or better gift than by registering as an organ donor? Doesn’t that sound better than getting socks?
