License plate promoting Organ & Tissue Donation Awareness now available in Ontario

Last week was National Organ and Tissue Donation Week and to celebrate this Ontario's Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN) unveiled their new licence plate designed to keep organ and tissue donation at the top of our minds all year round.

As TGLN Board of Directors Member Diane Craig said in their press release: "This licence plate has so many meanings. It is our hope that it celebrates those who have given the gift of life. We also hope that it serves as an important reminder to sign your donor card and speak to your family about your wishes. This licence plate is about making you aware every day of the year that your decision can save a life." Full Press Release

The Gift of Life Licence Plate is now available through the Ministry of Transportation. In addition, MTO will be reminding Ontarians to give the gift of life with a message on the back of every license plate renewal envelope containing an organ and tissue donation card inside.
