Donate_Life_Texas_7_MillionLess than one year ago, we were excited for the Texas registry to hit 5 million registered organ donors. Today, that number has reached 7 million, and counting. 

A Note From Donate Life Texas

"Seven has long been considered a lucky number and Donate Life Texas is now proud to carry that tradition forward. On this happy morning, January 7, we are proud to announce that the Donate Life Texas registry has now registered 7 million organ, eye and tissue donors!

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of all Donate Life Texas partners across the state, we can celebrate this lifesaving milestone together. Your efforts to educate individuals, to reach out into our communities and to ask people to sign up on the Donate Life Texas registry are what have made all the difference. With each registered donor comes the hope of more transplants, shorter wait times for those in need and a lessened decision-making burden on grieving families.   

Please visit DLT on Facebook and Twitter to like and share our announcement and join us in congratulating the 7 million Texans who have each made a personal commitment to Donate Life!

On behalf of all those whose lives are touched by donation, thank you & congratulations!"

Making an Impact for Organ Donation

Increasing official organ donor registries is just the beginning of our purpose. Current areas of focus include:

  • providing Legacy Gifts to financially assist those touched by organ donation
  • changing the conversation of organ donation to be a positive one about life and encouraging an “Outlive Yourself” spirit.
  • awarding Taylor’s Gift Scholarshipsto graduating seniors who demonstrate an above and beyond “Outlive Yourself” spirit
  • sponsoring lodging for pre-transplant and post-transplant patients and their families at Nora’s Home

The Taylor’s Gift team hosts events, delivers speaking engagements and encourages grassroots fundraisers to further our mission, educating audiences about organ donation and the gift each of us has within.
