Honor Every Part: #FannibalsDonateLife Organ Donor Campaign
Here’s the scoop - April is Organ Donor Awareness Month in Australia, Canada, the UK and US! To celebrate, Fannibals worldwide are pledging to donate their organs after death, to honor every part and help save lives.
Why is this important?
All over the world, patients are in need of organs, marrow and other tissue for transplantation. The supply of organs is far outweighed worldwide by the demand, meaning that wait lists are long. Some don’t make the wait. By becoming an organ donor, you have the ability to give a person (or people) another chance at life.
Honor every part, choose to give life.
How can I help?
Step 1. Register as a donor in the month of April
See the links at the end of the post on how to register as an organ donor in your country! If you have already registered, THANK-YOU! You can then move on to step 2.
Step 2. Join the Fannibal Donor Club
Once you have registered please take the attached image, insert your photo and tag #FannibalsDonateLife on Twitter and Tumblr so we can find you!
Step 3. Spread the word!
Share the Fannibal love! Organ donation isn’t something most of us even think about unless we, or someone we love is in the unlucky situation of needing a donor. By becoming a donor and spreading awareness you are literally becoming a lifesaver!
You can also visit my Dropbox for Donor Card art, Facebook Timeline art and organ donor heart image to use and share throughout April.
Thank-you all so much for taking the time to read through this info, and a special thanks to the team at Dino De Laurentiis Co for their amazing work. You can find them here on Tumblr and Twitter.
Together we can do something really wonderful for the community - it’s a privilege to know you all and call you my Fannibal Family,
All the best!
