To be an organ donor is quite simple. You can register when you go to the DMV and renew a driver’s license or you can go online to Donate Life North Carolina.
Facebook is actually helping to increase organ donors. Researchers at Johns Hopkins recently published a study on the effect Facebook had on registration rates for donors. The Social networking site allowed users to make their organ donor status public on its site in May of 2012. The first day the status update was available, more than 13,000 people registered to be donors with their DMV. The average number of new registrations in a day is 600.
