April 23rd – Transplant Awareness Tweet-A-Thon
Join Cleveland Clinic Florida and the Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency (LAORA) as we celebrate National Donate Life Month by promoting organ transplant and donation awareness. You are invited to participate in our first ever Tweet-A-Thon and help us encourage the Florida community to register as organ donors.
Where: Anywhere! You can participate in the Tweet-a-Thon anywhere you can access Twitter using the hashtags #DonateLifeFL and #DonateLife. If you will be on our main campus in Weston, you can also stop by the Transplant Tweet-A-Thon Table, which will be set up in front of the medical library on the first floor near the cafeteria.
Time: 10 a.m. – Noon
What: Through the Cleveland Clinic Florida Tweet-a-Thon, members of the South Florida community are invited to share information about organ donation, generate awareness about organ transplant issues, and encourage residents to sign up to be organ donors through Donate Life Florida. To participate and join the conversation, all you need to do is tweet from your own Twitter account using the hashtags #DonateLifeFL and #DonateLife.
Every 10 minutes, a new person adds his or her name to the national waiting list for an organ transplant and in Florida alone, more than 5,200 people are registered on the transplant waiting list. Just one person’s donation can save or improve as many as 50 lives.
