New York’s efforts to increase donor registration during Donate Life Month  |  April 12, 2011

Congratulations to New York state, where the Association of County Clerks has partnered with the New York Alliance for Donation to help increase registrations of organ, tissue and eye donors.

One local official has a particularly personal connection to the cause, via Little Falls Times:  “In a release about the local effort, county Administrator James Wallace, who received a kidney transplant from his brother, urged everyone to consider becoming an organ and tissue donor.

‘I was extremely fortunate to have a match with my brother who stepped up to save my life. I also know that there are thousands of people who are not as fortunate. I hope that you will take a minute or two to consider this gift,’ he said.”

Brochures, posters and enrollment forms alerting customers of the donor crisis can be found in DMV offices in NY.
