I first want to take a moment to thank everyone who stops by to read our posts.
We passed 3,000 channel views for our YouTube channel this week and have recorded over 50,000 views from our various video posts. That’s not by chance. That’s the result of all of us working together as a collective community, emailing around links, sharing our videos in blog posts, posting bulletins on MySpace, notes on Facebook and topics on discussion boards. So, thank you, thank you, thank you!
The more we work together as a collective voice, the more impact and influence we have in reaching out and touching others – reminding them of the crucial importance of organ and tissue donation and the drastic impact they can have on the lives of others as registered donors.
To tie back to the title of today’s post…
As we finish up the 2008 Campus Challenge this week, we thought it might be fun to remind everyone of our larger campaign goal that is going on – namely, registering 5 million Illinois residents as lifesaving organ donors by April 30, 2009. Currently, over 3.8 million Illinois residents have joined the state’s new first-person consent registry. We’ve got a ways to go, but with your continued help, we can get there!
We pulled together another fun video with our campaign mascot, Morgan D’ Organ, to remind us of our goal. For those of you that don’t immediately recognize the context of the video below, this video may help pull it into perspective.
Ahhh Morgan, you never cease to amaze me.
Onward to 5 million!!!
