The Waiting List

The Waiting List is an online multimedia storytelling project introducing the real stories of real people waiting for an organ transplant. Only 35% of licensed drivers nationally are registered to be organ donors. 90 percent of Americans say they support donation, but only 30 percent know the necessary steps to become an organ donor. Every 12 minutes, another person is added to the more than 100,000 people already on the organ transplant waiting list. Approximately eighteen people who are waiting for a transplant die every day.

The Waiting List seeks to inspire people to become an organ donor–a decision that could give the gift of life to an many as eight people.
