“Alex’s gift to our family, as well as to the four people he donated his vital organs to – his heart, liver and kidneys – was that he made this decision on his own, self-selecting himself as an organ donor when he registered at the DMV. Through his own compassion and thoughtfulness, he gave four people a second chance.”
Dawn Tindal, Alex Anderson’s mom

Who Can Register to be a Donor?

You can. Anyone can. Whether you are a teenager or a centenarian, if you wish to be a donor, you should register. Anyone 13 years or older can register online to be an organ and tissue donor, regardless of health conditions. While there are specific medical criteria that must be met to become an organ donor, leave that to the medical professionals to manage and simply opt yourself in to be considered.

You show up every day to do your best—to fulfill your roles as good parents, good children, good siblings, neighbors, friends, and in general—good people. Becoming a registered organ donor only takes a minute of your time and is an easy, life-saving demonstration of support for your community.
