The following step-by-step guide will give you everything you need to encourage organ donor registration in your organization.  We call it a Hero Blitz – but you can call it anything you want!   Simply follow the hyperlinks or click on a PDF, print off what you need and go!

Remember – our campaign encourages people to register their wishes – either yes or no – on the official Organ Donor registry.  People are not being asked to be organ donors – only to register their wishes.

Registration Blitz - 9 EASY STEPS

1)  You are going to need Posters to print off and post around your workplace/lunchroom. Remember to put your name and where/ how to reach you in the bottom section of the poster.

2)  Why not share a short video during your staff meeting?

3)  Looking for something to put in your company newsletter or e-blast, see the example newsletter ad (which can be sized to meet your needs) or template article.

4)  Perhaps you would like a banner for your intranet?

5)  Be proud of how your organization is making a difference in the lives of those needing life-saving transplants. Consider adding the official seal to your website, newsletters or on social media.

6)  Feeling social?  Try some of these Suggested Tweets.

7)  Have some information about organ donation handy at your desk for those colleagues who want to know more.

8)  Why not celebrate your colleagues who become a Hero?  Encourage people to wear their hero badge by simply printing the badges here on mailing labels, and giving them to people who have registered their wishes.
