Volunteer

LifeShare couldn’t do without our incredible volunteers.  They help in a number of ways ranging from handing out materials at health fairs to giving presentations to community groups. Some even help out in our office.

If you have some time and would like to join the legions of donor family members, transplant recipients and healthcare professionals who are already Donate Life Ambassadors, please contact Jennifer McCarn at (704) 512-3303 or jennifer.mccarn@lifesharecarolinas.org.

Talking Points for LifeShare Volunteers

Just like you never have a second chance to make a first impression, your first words also convey a certain image of you and of LifeShare.  Please note that the tips below are written for brief conversations, not for formal presentations.

When you meet someone new who is unfamiliar with LifeShare or Donate Life:
  • Introduce yourself and say, “I volunteer with LifeShare Of The Carolinas to help the public learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation. I was given a second chance at life because of my ___________ transplant.  If someone had not chosen to be a donor, I would probably not be alive today.  I hope to bring attention to the need for more donors and why registering your decision to be one is so important.
Or
  • Introduce yourself. I volunteer with LifeShare Of The Carolinas to help people learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation.  When my ___________ died, he/she was a donor.  It gives me/my family great comfort to know that he/she continues to make a difference in the lives of others.   I hope that by sharing my story, people will be encouraged to get the facts and to go a step further by registering their decision to be a donor.

As people ask more questions, feel free to add additional information. Hopefully you will have a chance to dispel some of the common myths regarding  donation and to talk more about your relationship with LifeShare.
