You can promote donation by sharing your own story regarding donation and by sharing your donation decision with family, friends and co-workers. The power of stories and the word of mouth is one of the best ways to spread the word about the importance of organ and tissue donation.
Staffing an informational table at community events, such as health fairs, autumn-fests and holiday bazaars is another great way to promote donation. Setting up a table where many people will pass by, handing out donation information and explaining how to register online is a great way to reach a large number of people at once.
Distributing brochures containing information about organ and tissue donation is helpful in spreading awareness, as well. Many people have questions that are answered in the brochure, that they might not feel comfortable asking.
To request brochures or other supplies for an informational table, or to request that RIODAC volunteers staff a table at your event, please contact us for more information.
