Organ Donor Awareness Week
Donor Awareness Week is taking place this week with Ray D’Arcy as Ambassador. Indeed awareness of organ Donation does not have time boundaries but the week is used to raise Awareness of the huge benefits and hopefully expand the number of donors.
It must be one of the most noble acts imaginable for someone to donate a life enriching bodily organ to another person. Organ Donor Cards can also be obtained by phoning the Irish Kidney Association LoCall 1890 543639 or Freetext the word DONOR to 50050. Visit website www.ika.ie It is now possible to store an organ donor card, the ‘ecard’ on Smart mobile phones. Simply search for ‘Donor ECard’ at the IPhone Store or Android Market Place.
So people are encouraged to carry a traditional donor card on their person or in their car. I presume they are still available at local Chemist shops as I have seen in the past.
