Are you an organ donor?

When you get your driver's license they ask you if you want to be an organ donor. My mother, bless her heart, at the age of 84 is an organ donor. However, I don't know if any of her organs would be useful now to another person. She has had triple bypass surgery on her heart, she has cataracts on her eyes, etc. But, that being beside the point, it made me curious to know how many people are organ donors. I am not, but I want to change that. If I could save a life, or enhance a life, I think it would be a good thing to do. This way a little part of you can live on. Are you an organ donor? What made you decide to donate your organs? If you aren't, why not?

I think it is wonderful that you also donate your hair to locks of love. Your response is very helpful to me, as I did not know that you can request your organs go to family first. Thanks for your response!
