Two blog posts in 24 hours, very unlike me! The reason for this post is that I woke up this morning to 126 new emails, loads of new tweets and facebook messages. After wondering what the hell was going on I realised that the BBC interview I had done for their website had gone live cue lots of lovely comments and feedback on it. You can find it here if you haven't had a read. Its fantastic to have so many new people get in touch and say the article made them sign up and to read all my tweets and comments of support. Hello new readers! *waves to you all*
I thought I would post a quick entry as lots of people are asking how to sign up to the organ donor register. You can do it <strong>here online and it literally takes 2 minutes to do.
I'm hoping that some of my new readers may like to become a bit more involved and help me spread the word about organ donation so here are a few ideas to get you started. I'm happy for anyone to use the links to my articles, blog etc if they think it will help.
.Email 10 people (or better yet even more)telling them about organ donation and giving the link to sign up. Ask each of them to pass it onto their friends too.
•Send a tweet asking people to sign the organ donor register and include the link to sign up http://tinyurl.com/ldkrcz
•Tell all your friends on facebook why it's so important to sign up!
•Talk to people in you're workplace about signing up. Put leaflets or a poster in your staffroom to get them interested. You could even set up computers to the organ donation register so they can sign up then and there. Promotional materials can be found here
•Do you write a blog? Why not write a post about organ donation and the difference it can make.
•If you're feeling adventurous take up a challenge event/ make a donation/or have a fundraiser for LLTGL so they can continue their lifesaving work promoting organ donation and supporting transplant patients. Check out their website for more fabulous ideas for getting involved!
It couldn't be simpler to get involved and could literally be the difference between life and death for people like me. Leave me a comment and let us know what you've been up to! I would love to hear your stories and ideas.
