The number of Manitobans who signed up online to be organ donors last week was record-breaking, ChrisD.ca has learned.
SignUpForLife.ca was launched last Monday as an easy way for people to commit to being organ and tissue donors.
Transplant Manitoba was overwhelmed by the success of the launch and will now be submitting its data to Guinness World Records, with 1,022 registrants in just eight hours. The record for organ donor registration is 765 in that same time period.
As of 7:25 a.m. this morning, 3,423 people had signed up.
