Ever since I was young, I wanted to make a change in the world. I've always wanted to put a smile on people's faces and do my best to help the ones in need. At the age of 16, I became a donor. I thought to myself, I would rather make use of something I won't need anymore. I will give my tissues and organs to someone who desperately needs it. I could save a life. This was such a proud moment for me. I am now a nurse and realize how many people are in need. I have a mother, a father and a sister. They mean the world to me and I would hope that they could be rescued by a donor if they ever needed it. I would hope the same for your family. I will, one day, leave my friends and family mourning knowing another family won't have to.

What if, only donors could receive a transplant of organs or tissues? Would you then give? As a community, we have to give and take. We have to share and help each other. With the help of donors, we could be able to save the life of your loved ones. Act now and become a donor today!
