MLibrary for Life

1st Annual MLibrary for Life Organ Donor Registration Drive

Thanks to everyone for making this year's drive a huge success! Over the course of 4 days (October 18-21, 2010), 5 University libraries and 2 campuses we talked to 797 students, faculty and staff members. 222 visitors stopped by to ask questions or pick up information, 352 were already registered as organ donors and 223 of them registered at our tables. That is potentially 4,600 lives saved and 28,750 lives improved by the gift of life!

If you would like to help with next year's drive by joining the planning committee or volunteering to staff a table, please contact thl-outreach@umich.edu.

A sincere thanks to all of the volunteers that made this effort possible!
