Donation card
'VideoDonor.com Organ Donation Card' by VideoDonor.com

I recently noticed that my driverís license does not identify me as an organ donor, which is strange because my provisional license did and I havenít made any amendments to my status. I suppose Iíll have to update my details.

Are you an organ donor?

No. I have this thing about them cutting out my organs before I am completely dead! However, I know that if it came down to it, and I could not make that decision, my family would make it for the sake of saving a life!
I know what you mean. I had a similar fear of being buried alive. Eek!

I am an organ donor, and have a separate organ donor card. I didn't know it was meant to be on your licence though! I will have to chase that up.
Yeah, unless they have changed it. Like I said, I don't know why my status as an organ donor was displayed on my provisional license, but not on my current full license.

I have a card that says so in my wallet.
I have told my family, and they know what to do.
You have to make sure, your family do not block your wishes, say 'if' they had no idea your donating.
I didn't realise there is a specific card an organ donor has to have. I always just assumed you tick the appropriate box when filling out your details at the RTA (RMS) and that was it.

It also says that you really want to donate, and helps people to get your organs more efficiently I believe.But! one must tell family, or they can stop it.(when your gone of course) :)

Aha. I understand. Already told family. Let's hope they don't go against my wishes.

Yes, I am an organ donor and have been for many years. Having had a few close people t me have transplants, i realise how very important this is.

Once we are dead, that's it, so I cannot understand why not everyone is a donor considering you could save a child's life.

I don't think mine has been on my license for years.

I'm a registered organ donor. I remember indicating my will to donate organs in case of a fatal accident but I don't see that on my Vic licence, should check that.
My only wish is that my partner can understand my motivation about this and will agree in the later stages.
And also that the Docs & others stick to ethics and morals when preparing to cut me up!
Some valid concerns there. I hope so too!

I have willed my organs, but not signed a card. My husband and family members know of my wishes.
And they understand? My husband is not happy with the idea of me donating my organs.
by Vee
I have my organ donor card in my purse where it could easily be found. I have told my family it is really important to me that anything that could benefit someone else should be transplanted. Once I am dead my body will be of no use to me so if an organ could help someone else I want that to happen.
Yes. I am. I hope I will be able to help others after I have gone, and do not need my organs anymore.

Have been for many years and have made sure that all my family know. Have a card and it's on my license.
