  This is an altruistic post by Aishwarya @ aishwaryasivakumar . I think everyone should consider "organ donation" as part of their "end of life" plan. This is like your last ditch effort at giving back . I think it's a  little selfish to allow your perfectly functioning organs to rot 6 feet under when it can extend the life of several other people and make their families happy. But then again, you have no control if it ends up in the hands (or bodies) of criminals, but that would be a whole different topic altogether. No offense meant. Some people don't just think about these things. Maybe they don't think ahead, or maybe they're scared, or maybe it's their religious conviction that stops them. Either way, others have reasons that they feel are valid so I won't argue with that. 15576cebe59526bd36beaa9663c2703e   Organ donation takes healthy organs and tissues from one person for transplantation into another. Experts say that the organs from one donor can save or help as many as 50 people.  Most organ and tissue donations occur after the donor has died. But some organs and tissues can be donated while the donor is alive. persuasive-speech-organ-donation-powerpoint-3-728 More facts... 8truths.jpg People of all ages and background can be organ donors. If you are under age 18, your parent or guardian must give you permission to become a donor. If you are 18 or older you can show you want to be a donor by signing a donor card.
