The power of 48 hours

Transplant Manitoba – Gift of Life is celebrating National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week during April 19 – 25, 2015.

Transplant Manitoba – Gift of Life is proud to partner with other provincial registries in support of #48in48 – a BC-based campaign calling for 48,000 Canadians to register their intent to donate within 48 hours over April 20-21.

Stop by and visit with the Transplant Manitoba – Gift of Life team at our booth on Tuesday, April 21 at HSC Winnipeg’s 700 William Ave. entrance. You can register your intent to donate online and on the spot – just be sure to bring your Manitoba health card.

If you’ve signed your blue organ donor card, take the #48in48 as an opportunity to retire it and go online. Information you have filled out on your card is not filed anywhere, except in your wallet or purse. Registering online means your decision to be an organ and tissue donor is recorded and accessible to the medical team. Your blue card might not be.

Register your intent to donate at during #48in48 and be part of something big!
