The Worlds Largest Organ Donor Card
The Worlds Largest Organ Donor Card

FIGURE SKATER WANTS TO GET HER HANDS ON YOUR ORGAN! Meanwhile... GRABS NBA PLAYER.

(Reno, NV) Did you know that 10 people die everyday in the United States while waiting for a life saving organ? Did you also know that the national waiting list for organs is at an all time high?

U.S. Adult National Figure Skating medalist and kidney recipient Hillary Schieve (She-vee) has created the World's Largest Organ Donor card to raise national awareness to the severe organ shortage. Schieve is out to get 50,000 signatures which represent the number of Americans who wait for a life saving organ every year.

The Goal
Schieve is embarking on a world wide campaign to help the 50,000 people who are waiting right now for an organ transplant. To do it, she's telling everyone, "I want to get my hands on your organ!" from Howard Stern to Hillary Clinton.
" People need to realize that this cause has a cure says Schieve."

The Card
The campaign centerpiece is a huge organ-donor card with room for 50,000 signatures. The card is located on the World Wide Web at WWW. LargeOrgan. com. When she collects the signatures, Schieve plans on getting it printed on a huge billboard in a major U .S. city.

The History
Schieve (She-vee), 24, was training for a spot on the 1992 U.S. Olympic Team when she was struck with kidney and heart failure from a strep throat infection. After receiving a life saving kidney from her younger sister Amanda, she resumed training, and j ust last year won a Silver Medal out of 75 competitors at the 1996 Adult National U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

The Kickoff
The card was released April 20, 1997 in Lake Placid, New York. Why then? Because it's the week of the U.S. Adult National Figure Skating Championships, where Schieve will compete but most importantly to represent National Organ Donor Awareness Week.

THE FIRST SIGNATURE
The Toronto Raptors forward Carlos Rogers has joined the campaign and will be the first name added to the card. The NBA player recently lost his sister Rene Rogers, 28, while she was waiting for a kidney transplant. Carlos offered to donate one of his kid neys but learned Rene was too weak for transplant, and died one day later.
" He speaks from his heart and is truly passionate about this cause. I think we will make a great team." says Schieve.
Last year only 15,000 people in the U.S. donated organs leaving approximately 35,000 people are in desperate need.
Every 18 minutes in the United States a new name is added to the national waiting list for a life saving organ transplant.

Why don't you join the cause and Sign the World's Largest Organ Donor Card!
