National Donor Sabbath Month: Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Awareness
HJC is Participating in National Donor Sabbath Month to Increase Awareness for Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation in New York November is designated as National Donor Sabbath Month. HJC’s Social Action Committee is working with the New York Organ Donor Network along with numerous houses of worship across the Greater New York metropolitan area to share the powerful message of life-saving donation and transplantation. During the campaign, the Donor Network asks each of us to remember the greatest gift—the gift of life. This is a blessing which many New Yorkers find out of reach, especially those waiting patiently for life-saving transplants. By registering today as organ, eye and tissue donors, individuals provide hope to the more than 112,000 men, women and children currently on the national waiting list. 8, 000 of those individuals waiting are located here in the New York metropolitan area. For more information about how to get involved, please contact Miriam Eckstein-Koas at firstname.lastname@example.org. To sign up to be an organ donor today or for more information about donation, please visit www.SaveLivesNewYork.org. Check out this important clip: http://youtu.be/B8H9wfZbTXc
