In celebration of National Donate Life Month (April), Donate Life Illinois volunteer, Moreena Tiede (who also runs the DLI McLean County volunteer blog here) has led the charge on organizing a video contest that is open to anyone for submissions. The purpose of the contest is obviously to call attention to the crucial need for registrations and the growing need to help the more than 4,700 Illinoisans and 98,000 people nationwide waiting for lifesaving transplants.
The winners will be announced by Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White at a press conference held at Illinois State University in April celebrating National Donate Life month. The theme for the videos will be “Remember This,” which you can interpret any way you like to produce a video promoting organ and tissue donation. Submissions are due March 28, 2008.
Videos should be posted as video responses here, no longer than 3 minutes and as simple or complex as you’d like.
