The statistics on the need for organ donation are staggering. According to Donate Life America, there are 118,000 men, women and children who are waiting for an organ donation to save their lives. Every 10 minutes another person is added to the national waiting list. 22 people die per day because they were waiting for an organ donation. It’s hard to deny that the need is great. Only 54% of Americans are registered as organ donors while 95% think that it’s a good idea. It’s time to close that gap.Read more: Become an Organ Donor Today
You know the old saying - "The only two things in life that are for certain are death and taxes."
Taxes - We all prepare for the inevitable tax day of April 15. Annually we spend time, money, and personal resources on the preparation of taxes. No one likes it but we all do it.
Death - More and more of us are planning for this inevitability. In a fraction of the time just one year of tax preparation takes you could have you funeral or memorial services planned and paid for.
