Organ and Tissue Donation
Every Person in New York

Donate Life America
Donate Life America is a non-profit with a mission to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation. At this moment, 115,000 people (adults and children) are waiting for life-saving transplants.

Alliance for Donation
New York Alliance for Donation's remit is to 'increase organ, eye, and tissue donation in New York State through collaborative advocacy, education, promotion, and research.'

Live On NY
Live on New York will give you the facts of about organ donation. For instance, 10,000 New Yorkers are waiting for organs and every 18 hours, someone dies waiting for one of those organs. It can also send you to the Registry Form.

Eye-Bank for Sight Restoration
Over 65,000 people have had their sight restored through corneal transplants made possible by donations to the Eye-Bank for Sight Restoration. The Eye Bank was founded 74 years ago, the first of its kind.

United Network for Organ Sharing
UNOS matches organ donors to recipients. Organs that can be transplanted are the liver, kidney, pancreas, heart, lung, intestine and vascularized composite allografts (face and hand transplantation).

Additional Resources
For more information on organ and tissue donation, TRIO (Transplant Recipients International Organization) and The Gift of a Lifetime have helpful information for transplant candidates, recipients, donors and their families.

Jason Polan started Every Person in New York in March of 2008. He plans on working on the project until it is finished. Look for more at Jason's site and his book Every Person in New York.
