Hint: Organ transplantation is miraculous advancement in modern medicine. Organ donors are scant than the recipient which limits doctors from saving a life.

Complete answer:
Two slogans that can popularize the organ donation are:
“Soul goes to heaven organs don’t.”
“If you don’t make it to the finish line, somebody can with your donated organs.”
Organ donation is a noble job that can save the lives of numerous patients even after your death. Here is a list of all known organs and tissues that can be transplanted:
> Liver
> Kidney
> Heart
> Lung
> Intestine
> Cornea
> Middle ear
> Skin
> Bone
> Bone marrow
> Heart valves
> Connective tissue
Vascularized composite allografts such as skin, bone, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue.
Organ donor- people of all ages are the eligible potential donor. After a person is dead, the corpse is evaluated for organ donation based on their age and medical history. The Organ Procurement Agency channelizes organ donation.
Steps to become an organ donor: Interested individuals who wish to be organ donors should follow these steps:
> Join a donor registry.
> Sign and carry an organ donor card.
> Donor’s family members must be well aware of the donor’s organ donation wish.
> You must also inform your family healthcare provider, lawyer, and religious leader about your decision of organ donation.
Ways to become organ recipient:
The recipient needs to get on the national waiting list. For that, the recipient needs to visit a transplant hospital. The doctor at the hospital will examine and decide if transplantation is required. Upon examination, the patient is updated on the national waiting list.
Next, the recipient needs to wait. Waiting time for organ donation cannot be estimated. When an organ becomes available, all the patients in the pool are assessed to determine compatibility.
The process to receive an organ or tissue- When an organ becomes available, the local organ procurement organization sends medical and genetic information to the national agency concerned with organ donation in that country. Then the agency generates a list of potential recipients, based on the following factors:
> Blood type
> Tissue type
> Organ size
> Medical urgency of the patient’s illness
> Time already spent on the waiting list
> The geographical distance between the donor and the recipient
The organ is offered first to the best match candidate via transplant centre. The transplant team has the option to decide if they can accept or refuse the organ. This is determined based on medical criteria and other factors such as staff and patient availability and organ transportation.
If the transplant centre refuses the organ, then the next patient on the list of transplants centre is contacted and the process continues until the organ is placed.

Organ donation requires transplanting healthy organs and tissues from donor to donor. Data suggests that donation from one person can save the lives of about 50 people. List of known organs that can be donated are:
> Internal organs such as kidneys, heart, liver, pancreas, intestines, lungs.
> Skin
> Bone and bone marrow
> Cornea
People of all ages and backgrounds can be an organ donor. If a donor is minor (below 18 years of age) then on the consent of his/her parents/guardian he/she can qualify for organ donation. Interested donors above 18 years of age just have to sign certain qualifying documents and he/she is eligible for organ donation. But before doing so, one must inform and take the confidence of their family.
