So Thanksgiving is all about giving…correct?!?

So, how about becoming the best kind of gift giver of all…give the gift of life by becoming an organ donor.

Even Oprah, one of the best gift givers out there, knows how important this is, she’s a donor.

It takes more than just telling someone you’d like to be one, or simply putting it on your driver’s license. Please take a few moments of your time by clicking

to register. It’s easy, I swear.

I’m beyond being sick and tired (no pun intended) of hearing about Americans, people who live in a county overflowing with medical advancements, dying while they wait.

There are currently more than 90,000 men, women, and children in the United States waiting for a life-saving transplant.

Look at this woman standing with Nate Berkus. 

Nate R

Her name is Roschelle Ogbuji.

Each of Roschelle’s THREE children perished in a house fire. Two were not able to donate, but she and her husband chose to donate their one year old daughter’s organs when doctors determined there wasn’t anything they could do to save her. I don’t think that you could be any less selfless…or any more inspiring.

If she can face the hopelessness of moving through the pain of living without any of her her children, and can still make the decision to give the gift of life…

then anyone can do it.

So please, this Thanksgiving…I urge you to take a moment of your time to register.

  1. What a great post! Yeah I am an official organ donor, not just on my drivers license.
