Save Lives, Promote Organ Donation
UW Organ and Tissue Donation is a founding member of Donate Life Wisconsin - a statewide donation coalition.

"Kevin's family donated his organs, and by doing so forever changed my life," said Deppe.
The new Donate Life license plates were created to help promote organ, tissue and eye donation public education efforts statewide, as well as to help defray the costs of the new online donor consent registry, which will roll-out in 2010.
People who wish to personalize their Donate Life license plate can do so for an additional $15.00, which goes to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Roni Lawrence, Clinical Manager at UW Organ and Tissue Donation, personalized her plate to promote organ donation.
"It's a fun way to share my personal donation message, and to help promote donation in a highly visible way," said Lawrence.
The plates can be ordered by mail or in person at any Wisconsin DMV Service Center.
