The “club model” for organ donation is in operation in the United States. Registered organ donors can get preferred access to donated organs by joining LifeSharers. Membership is free at www.lifesharers.org or by calling 1-888-ORGAN88. There is no age limit, parents can enroll their minor children and no one is excluded due to any pre-existing medical condition.

Giving your organs to other organ donors helps create an incentive for non-donors to donate. It also makes the transplant system fairer. People who aren’t willing to donate should go to the back of the transplant waiting list as long as there is an organ shortage.
