  • Donate LifeYou can give no greater gift than the gift of life. By joining the Michigan Organ Donor Registry, you can help give that gift. Just one organ and tissue donor can save the lives of eight people and enhance the lives of more than 50.

    Please consider signing up today. If you join when you renew or when you get your first driver's license or state ID card, you'll have a heart logo printed on your new license or ID card. If you join before your license expires, you'll receive a heart logo sticker that should be placed on your license or ID card. When your license or ID card expires, you'll be sent a new one with the heart logo printed on it after you renew it.

    If you lose your heart logo sticker, you can easily order a new one.
