Though most Ontarians believe that organ and tissue donation is a good thing, only about a third of eligible Ontarians are actually registered. That’s why we need your help to encourage your networks to register.
Help spread the word about the importance of registering consent for organ and tissue donation. Set up a registration drive page to share with your friends, family, colleagues, and network and let them know why organ and tissue donation is important to you and to encourage registration.
Did you know? People are more likely to register if those close to them have registered and have asked them to do the same.

Dos and Don’ts for a successful campaign
Share why donation is important to you. By telling your story, you help make the need for organ and tissue donors real, and not just another worthy cause
Try to incorporate your page in all your awareness-raising efforts. Once you’ve inspired people to register, your page gives them the opportunity to do it right away, before procrastination and forgetfulness set in
Use the regional and community data available at www.BeADonor.ca to help motivate your friends and family. Are rates low where you live? Encourage your neighbours to help improve them. Are rates better than average? Push your local networks to make sure your community stays a leader
Just rely on your own network. Ask everyone in your network to share it with their friends, family, and colleagues! That’s how you can reach the most people and get the best results
Make your participation a one-day endeavour. We’ll continue to give you new reasons and tools to reach out to your networks again. Some people may need to see your request a few times before they are convinced to register
