Organ & Tissue Donation Program The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the USA has joined forces with Donate Life America to increase the number of registered organ, eye, and tissue donors in the United States. The Grand Lodge, Lodge Activities/State Associations Committee is asking Elks Lodges nationwide to promote the Organ Donor Program in their Lodge Bulletins and Lodge Web sites to help inspire members and citizens in their communities to make these life-saving donations. The need is paramount. More than 111,000 patients are currently waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and many thousands more would have their lives enriched through a tissue or corneal transplant. Please visit the Donate life America Web site, www.donatelife.net to learn more about this public health crisis and how you can help Fortunately, we Elks Members can help! The effort of Lodges to promote the program through their Bulletins and Web site can gain them five points in their quests to be named an All American Lodge. More incentives will be announced in coming years as the program takes shape throughout Elkdom. For more information on the importance of donation and how to become a registered donor in your state, click on the Donate Life icon to visit the Donate Life America website. This is a great way to show that "Elks Give from the Heart.”
