Penn State Marketing Association looks to sign up new organ donors

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The Penn State Marketing Association (PSMA) is working with its national philanthropy, AMA (American Marketing Association) Saves Lives, to help register new organ donors.

Currently, more than 105,000 people in the U.S. are waiting for a transplant, and 6,500 people die every year on the transplant wait list -- 18 per day -- because there are far more people in need of an organ than there are registered donors.

PSMA is encouraging people to register at http://amasaveslives.com/register.php and credit "Penn State University-University Park."

All registrations should be completed by March 17. Questions can be sent to psma.saveslives@gmail.com.
