(SPM Wire) National Donor Day, aptly recognized every Valentine’s Day on February 14, is an annual opportunity to share your love and compassion with friends, family and your community. Here are a few ways you can take part:
1. Register to be an organ donor. Registration is quick and simple and could save lives. To learn more, visit donatelife.net.
2. Contact a blood center. Communities are in constant need of whole blood, platelets and plasma to keep patients healthy. If you’re eligible to donate, consider making an appointment, particularly if you’ve recovered from COVID-19. Your donation could help those with the virus fight it.
3. Spread the word. Talk to friends and family about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation and your decision to become an organ donor, as well as the importance of donating blood.
