Every state has a registry. The problem? People move and travel sometimes – and their registrations don’t follow them. It’s different when you register with ORGANIZE.
Introducing 53: the very first central registry that any organ procurement organization in any state can search. It ensures that registrations can be found anywhere in the country. It’s free to use, because we’re in this to save lives—not make money.
53’s online registration is free for everyone, and can be finished in about 47 seconds. (Yes, we’re that accurate.)
In addition to registrations, 53 can also capture social media posts as evidence of your donor wishes. Help us change the system: every tweet puts pressure on states to start searching 53.
Donor, currently in beta, helps patients looking for living donations (kidney or liver) find their match on Facebook.
To get in and get matched, all you’ll have to do ask your doctor for a unique code, and share the story of your need or desire to help.
Our beta testing showed that patients who used Donor for Facebook were six times more likely to find a match than those who didn’t.
What’s more, each story shared on Donor humanizes those hoping for an organ, and helps spread the word to #EndTheWaitList.
Want to do more? Use social media for more than just cat pics. Whether or not your life has been touched by organ donation, you can create your own organ donation drive, get your friends registered, and shorten the waitlist for all of us.
LifeRaiser is in development now. In the meantime, here are some rad social posts to share with your squad.
Mind-blow: if one single donor registration could save up to eight lives, think about what your entire Facebook friends list could do.
LifeRaiser will have all of the sharable pictures, social media posts, ideas, and tools you’ll need. You’ll even be able to see the impact you’re making, in real time.
Would getting every American to communicate their wishes be great? Of course. But it’s not the only thing we can do. In the spirit of building a system that will live beyond us, everything ORGANIZE does helps inform meaningful, lasting policy solutions.
We received an Innovator in Residence position in the Secretary’s Office of HHS, making us the only external group working on organ donation from inside the government.
We’re partnering with the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team to produce a Definitive Best Practices Report on organ donor registration messaging.
