Municipal clerks across the state are saving lives!
Municipal clerks can play an important role in saving and transforming lives by partnering with Gift of Life Michigan. With a few simple steps, your office can help us make the Michigan Organ Donor Registry available to your constituents and staff so they can help others.
The urgent need: Growing the Donor Registry is crucial. More than 2,400 Michigan residents are waiting today for an organ transplant. We need your help.
What you can do to help
- Send a short email to employees in your office or municipality explaining our partnership. Include the Michigan Organ Donor Registry link and ask them to consider signing up if they haven’t already.
- Add a link to the Donor Registry (GOLM.org) to your email signature and your website so your constituents can access it.
- Help us promote the Donor Registry on your social media platforms. Share posts from Gift of Life’s Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn pages.
- Publish a story about our partnership in your constituent or internal newsletter and show readers how to register.
- Shoot a simple cell-phone video PSA promoting the Donor Registry and our partnership.
- Is someone in your office connected personally to donation or transplantation? If so, let us know or tell their story and share it.
