Foundations Register Organ Donors at 2013 March 27 Blood Donor Clinic

On 2013 March 27 the Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation and the Pinawa Community Foundation in collaboration with the Canadian Blood Services and Transplant Manitoba ran a campagne to register organ donors.  Manitoba has one of the lowest percentages of organ donors with less than 4000 people registered.  The Foundations set up a booth with computers and on-line links to Transplant Manitoba’s sign up for life website.  Out of 114 blood donors in attendance on March 27th 53 were registered as organ donors.
