Why donate?

Today I attended a talk about organ donation and among the many things I learned, I’d like to share with you some numbers:

  • 8: The number of possible organs that can be donated. This includes the heart, both lungs (or just a lobe), the liver (or just a piece), the kidneys, the intestines (or just a section) and the pancreas
  • 18: The number of people that die daily waiting for an organ transplant
  • 22,000: the number of people in California waiting for transplants
  • 132,000: the number of people in the U.S. waiting for transplants
  • 133: the number of people added to the wait-list each day

In addition to donating organs, individuals can donate tissues. In fact, one person can provide vital tissues for as many as 50 people.

While the donation of organs is a very time sensitive ordeal, tissues have a much smaller time dependance and the matching of blood type and body size is less of an issue.

In addition to the more common deceased donation, live donations are also an option. 

For more information on what organs and tissues can be donated, how donation works and/or how to register once you have made an informed decision, check out the following links:

If you haven’t eaten yet today, go fucking eat. If you haven’t hit a minimum of 2000 calories today, go fucking eat. If you haven’t drank any water today, go fucking fill a glass. If you haven’t had at least 8-10 cups today, fucking get there. Being physically nourished is crucial and needs to be don

Kinda old news, but about 3 months ago phananigans posted some lyrics to a reprise of Do You Wanna Build a Snowman that really clicked with me. I liked the idea of Elsa being unable to bring herself to touch Anna right away and tried to explore that hesitation in the boards

This is the longest digital board I’ve done yet!
