Transplant advocate Hailey Cheema said she hopes the 21-year-old defenceman's story will inspire more young people to think about becoming organ donors. The organ transplant procedures were scheduled to begin early Sunday morning.

Here in Stratford, 47 per cent of residents are signed up to be organ donors. "He is a great hero and one of the nicest people you would have been lucky enough to meet".

"A record number of organ donors was seen in the United Kingdom last year, with the number of donors increasing by the most significant margin in 28 years".

According to Gavsie, on that day Trillium saw a "dramatic uptick" in registrations in Ontario - 182 compared to 30 on the previous Sunday.

The event, which was put on by Trillium Gift of Life Network - the provincial body responsible for organ donation in Ontario - consisted of organ transplant recipients holding doors for rush hour commuters and handing out toy hearts as an act of kindness, or a way to "pay it forward", Farinha explains.

'Harry Potter' books to get new jackets for 20th anniversary
When placed side-by-side in chronological order, the seven books create a single image that tell Harry Potter's "life" story. For U.S. editor Arthur Levine, he hopes that these new covers will help introduce even more readers to the Boy Who Lived.

The organization works with hospitals across Kansas and the western half of Missouri to determine organ matches and works with individuals and their families regarding each donation. "The organs and tissues of youngsters are recommended for transplant", he said. "We work with empathy and compassion and coordinate things and just try to make it as seamless as possible", Allen says.

Every year, she said the wait list grows, and hundreds of people die without receiving the treatment they need.

In Utah alone, there are around 800 people waiting to receive a transplant.

Roman Catholic bishop Paul Mason has said plans for an opt-out system "undermine the concept of donation as a gift, and cross the line of what is a reasonable action for the state to take in relation to the individuals within it". "So we've just tried to make it as simple as possible and to let people know how big of an impact they can have by taking that few seconds to register themselves".
