Israel Transplant asks the public to fulfil two public duties on Tuesday – to cast their ballots and to register as potential organ donors with the ADI organization. Representatives will put up stands near polling stations and encourage people to register. The campaign, which will be accompanied by public service messages on TV and radio and ads in the newspapers, will continue until Good Deeds Day on Mach 24.

Those who register as potential organ donors are entitled to higher priority in the queue if they themselves need an organ.

Dozens of organizations have already joined the ADI campaign and invited their own staffers and customers to sign up. One can sign up via the website at https://www.adi.gov.il/en, call *6262 and even use a smartphone app. Among the organizations that have joined the campaign are the Israel Police, Electric Corportion, Aroma café chain, Kibbutz Ein Hashofet, schools and youth movements.

Israel Transplant chairman and Rambam Medical Center director-general Prof. Rafael Beyar called on the public “to take advantage of Election Day, in which we vote and influence our future” to also take responsibility for each other and sign an ADI card.

According to Israel Transplant director Dr. Tamar Ashkenazi, on the previous election day some two years ago, over 30,000 people registered for a donor card. “We hope for the same success this time.”
