I saw this press release floating around recently & I was encouraged. I was happy to see Apple taking strides to partner with Donate Life America to offer yet another way for people to register as organ donors.
This goes hand in hand with also seeing the options that Facebook added to make sure people know others are donors if they so choose through an option on their profile.
I’ve also seen increased efforts in using Twitter to raise awareness but then help others raise funds & share information.
This is where technology plays a pivotal role in education. It’s great to see these sources be able to be leveraged. Even sites like Tinder, which I personally would have never thought of utilizing for trying to find donor matches.
It’s nice to see all these social outlets be able to be used in a positive way to encourage more people to be donors & simplify the registration process.
It’s an important move forward as every new registration counts.
The easier we make the process, (I tend to think) others will be more inclined to sign up. I still happen to think personally that a mandatory opt-in is the best way, but I can see how that might take awhile to pass & implement.
