Did you know your Facebook profile could help save a life?

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University collaborated with Facebook to add an organ donation option to a user’s profile.

If you are interested, all you have to do is click “life event” at the top your timeline, select “health and wellness” and then “organ donor” and click save.

Since this new option has been available, the number of online organ donation registrations has gone up twentyfold.
