that other holiday

Of course, today's not only Pitchers And Catchers Report Day for much of Major League Baseball. Today's also National Donor Day! There's still a huge shortage of donated organs worldwide, and no matter your age, I strongly encourage you to think about this, and to be an organ donor. You don't even have to fill out a form (though that helps too); all that matters is that your loved ones know your wishes. If you do want a form, though, here's one.

If you are an organ donor, please sound off here:

Organ donors!

I'm an organ donor!
25(96.2%)
...because I just sent in a form or talked about this to my loved ones for the first time today!
0(0.0%)
Today I've had or will have a conversation with a loved one to confirm my and/or their wishes to be an organ donor, whether it's the first time we've talked about it or not.
0(0.0%)


If you're not an organ donor, I'm not going to call you out in a poll, but please, if you're willing, post a comment about your decision so we can have a discussion about it. I feel quite strongly about this, and I'm curious about your opinion too.
