Donate Life NC has crafted some wonderful messages to be shared across the state throughout the month of May to help in our joint goal of inspiring more North Carolinians to register as donors.
These messages can be shared by an individual or both internally and externally by an organization. Internal suggestions include: electronic message boards in hospitals and clinics, employee intranets and email messages. Externally, share these via social media — and be sure you are following HonorBridge on Facebook and Donate Life NC on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest.
