November is Eye Donation Month

November 1, 2018

Dear Workplace Partner:

November is National Eye Donation Month, a time to spread awareness of the gift of restored sight. Last year, more than 84,000 corneas were transplanted, transforming the lives of thousands of people across the U.S. Please share the following information with your colleagues and communities to encourage more people to sign up as organ, eye, and tissue donors, so one day they could share the gift of life and restored sight. Thank you!

Life is beautiful—and so is the ability to see it. Every year thousands of people receive the gift of restored sight thanks to the selflessness of cornea donors. By registering as an organ, eye, and tissue donor, you too can give that gift.

Visit organdonor.gov or donaciondeorganos.gov to learn more about cornea donation and register as a donor. Remember to tell your friends and family about the importance of registering by sharing the above social media graphic with the following message:
