Hoosier hunters and anglers can save lives
Donate Life Indiana and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources have partnered to give Hoosiers the opportunity to save lives. When purchasing hunting, fishing or trapping licenses online, Hoosiers can also sign up to be organ and tissue donors at the same time.
Make sure to sign up as an organ donor during your transaction.
“We can all do something incredible to save the lives of others. Sign up to be an organ donor today.”
– Ryan Newman, NASCAR driver and Brickyard 400 champion
Why sign up to be a donor?
Over 1,000 Hoosiers and more than 100,000 people nationwide are waiting for lifesaving organ transplants. In the U.S., another person is added to the national transplant waiting list every nine minutes. Each day, 16 people die because a donated organ wasn’t available in time.
Donation is a rare and incredible gift. The medical condition of a potential donor at time of death determines if donation is possible and what organs and tissues can be donated. Fewer than 1% of people are medically eligible to become organ donors.
One donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and enhance the lives of more than 75 people through tissue donation.
