What do I need to do to try and start some sort of drive for kidney donation?

My cousin is extremely sick and needs a kidney ASAP. Like yesterday. They had to put filters in to help catch the blood clots. What can we do to increase the awareness of this and get people to be tested as possible donors?

  • Just start asking - I'd offer but i'm pregnant and i'm not sure you can donate a kidney while your pregnant.... I've seen posts on craigslist for them before, maybe go to your local news chanel?

  • Ask the center where he is being treated. They've faced this kind of need before, I'd bet they could give you some guidance.

  • For a DRIVE, contact the promotions manager at your favorite local radio station. For media awareness, contact your local news outlets.
