Who is NJ Sharing Network?

NJ Sharing Network is a non-profit, federally designated organ procurement organization. This means we are responsible for the recovery of organs and tissue for the nearly 4,000 New Jersey residents currently awaiting transplantation. Last year, 97 New Jersey residents died while waiting for a life-saving transplant. One organ and tissue donor can save 8 lives and restore health to over 75 others.

 

What is the goal of the #SaveNJLives initiative?

#SaveNJLives is an initiative designed to help share the message about organ and tissue donation and transplantation throughout the state of NJ. During the month of April (National Donate Life Month), over 135 participating pizzerias, coffee shops, diners, delis and bagel shops across New Jersey will be distributing custom designed pizza boxes and coffee sleeves displaying the number of people in the local area currently waiting for a life-saving transplant. The boxes and sleeves include a call to action to visit www.savenjlives.com, where visitors can learn how many people in their town are waiting for a transplant and ways that they can help.

 

How can I help?
