Transplant donors focus of B.C. campaign

How can we get 48,000 British Columbians to register their decision on organ donation in just 48 hours?

Starting today (Monday), B.C. Transplant is holding a 48-hour blitz to kick off Organ Donor Awareness week.

“It’s like a telethon, but we don’t want your money. We want you to register your decision on organ donation,” said Peggy John, B.C. Transplant communications manager.

“Eighty-five per cent of British Columbians support organ donation. Join the blitz on Monday and register at transplant.bc.ca”
