Because you can!
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
- Mahatma Gandhi
The very first reason as to why you should donate organs is simply because you can. Your organs are of no use to you after you pass away. While they might change the life of the recipient to a complete 360 degrees.
Donate simply because you can. Not all good things need a reason.
Heaven doesn’t need your organs, Earth does
Your organs can be a life-changing for a person who is fighting with death. You won't need your organs in heaven but there are many who would live with your organs on Earth.
You wouldn’t be living, but will still be alive
To keep living in someone else, even after you have died.
“If you want to touch the past, touch a rock. If you want to touch the present, touch a flower. If you want to touch the future, touch a life.”
Immortality is a collective wish for humankind. Now it is possible. Donate your organs and live in someone's else' body. How beautiful would it be to be useful to someone even when you are not in this world anymore?
All religions support the noble cause of organ donation.
“It's not howmuch we give but how much love we put into giving.”
- Mother Teresa
There is no religion in the world that does not support the cause of helping others. The importance of helping and sacrificing is emphasized in every religion. This is the greatest sacrifice you can make.
For instance, the Bhagavad Gita, in Chapter 3, Verse 16, it is written :
‘those who do not accept their responsibility in the cycle of sacrifice established by the Vedas are sinful. They live only for the delight of their senses; indeed their lives are in vain'.
Choosing quality life over quantity life
“We make a living by what weget. We make a life by what we give.”
- Winston S. Churchill
By donating an organ to someone who is suffering from organ failure, you are not only freeing them from pain but are also helping them live a quality life. People with kidney failures have to constantly be on dialysis which leads to quantity life that is filled with pain and struggles. As soon as the person undergoes a kidney transplant, their life is renewed with new energy and they begin living a quality life
Your once choice of helping by donating your organs carries a much bigger weight than you can imagine.
India needs it - thousands of people die only while waiting.
“It isgood to be blessed. It’s better to be a blessing”
No one should die a death while waiting for an organ to be donated that would match their body's parameters. This kind of death is very drastic. The basic humanity in a person will make them pledge their organs for donation because India needs to have a higher ODR.
Thousands of people die every year because they do not get an organ in time. A country is made by its people and the concern they show towards each other.
Don’t wait for someone close to you to die to realise the importance
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
- Nelson Mandela
There are various precedents set that show that we realise the threat or importance of something only and only after it happens to someone who is close to us. We refuse to acknowledge it until then, we don't even care.
Don't wait to face the grotesque reality after someone close to faces this issue. It will be too late then. Pledge your organs today.
Give a priceless gift
“Plant flowers in others’ gardens and your life becomes a bouquet!”
Can there be a better gift than the gift of life? You not only give a gift to the person who would receive your organs, but you also give a gift to their family, friends and everyone who is fortunate to have them in their life. Have you ever thought that what would happen if the person who needs an organ to survive would be the sole bread-winner of the family? What after him? What will his/her family do? Think about it.
The chance of being God-like
“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”
- Nelson Henderson
Since our childhood, we have been hearing that life and death is in the hands of God. We can not decide when to be born and when to die. But in the case of organ donation, you can be like a God for a person who would have otherwise died, without your organs.
Imagine the joy and the gratitude that your family would feel after your organs help save a life!
Save upto 8 lives!
“The great use of life is to spend it for something that outlasts it.”
- William James
The organs donated by one person can save the lives of 7-8 people! That is 8 times the joy and 8 new lives! If every brain-dead person donates their organs, the problem of organ scarcity will be solved to a very large extent. The smile of the faces of those 8 people will be worth a lot more than you would have earned in your lifetime.
Be a light for others to follow - bring about change.
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
How many times in our lives have we heard about people who have made history simply by being leaders? You have the chance to lead your own organ donation revolution. Tell your family and friends and form a chain. You will definitely bring about a change in the world.
