Here are some great quotes to share with you:

Don't think of organ donations as giving up part of yourself to keep a total stranger alive. It's really a total stranger giving up almost all of themselves to keep part of you alive. ~Author Unknown

Don't take your organs to heaven with you. Heaven knows we need them here. ~Author unknown, attributed to both Dan and Barbara Hladio and Thomas Boyadjis, Sr.

Be a blood and organ donor. All it costs is a little love. ~Author Unknown

From the bitterness of disease man learns the sweetness of health. ~Catalan Proverb

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. ~Kahlil Gibran
