Adair County: Thankful for Organ Donation
As the holidays are approaching, communities are looking forward to spending the holidays back in-person with their loved ones. For the families waiting on a life-saving organ transplant, the holidays are bitter-sweet. Over 1,000 Kentuckians are waiting for their transplant, a gift they will not find wrapped under the tree.
In efforts to save and heal lives through organ and tissue donation, the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks' Trust For Life is focused on public education and growing the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry in partnership with Donate Life Kentucky. This month, Donate Life Kentucky is challenging high school students and community members to a "Duet for Life." This is the first time the annual challenge has taken place on social media, where they will incorporate the ever-popular duet TikTok trend, which allows app users to split their viewing screen and create content alongside a pre-existing video. Winners could receive up to $1,000 in scholarship awards.
"Spreading holiday cheer is easy! Registering as an organ donor is a priceless gift - hope. We challenge Adair County to join in on the festivities and participate in this year's 'Duet For Life,'" said Dennis Loy, Adair County Circuit Court Clerk.
Educating Kentuckians is made possible thanks to philanthropic partners like our Circuit Court Clerks, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Kosair Charities, and the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates. Their continued generosity allow many Kentucky families the opportunity to spend the holidays together.
