The Donate Life Ohio Green Chair (Jessica Lashley/Donate Life Ohio)
Carson Palmer, a 2006 tissue recipient, has joined the Honorable Governor Ted Strickland and Ohio State University football coach Jim Tressel as well as a collection of not-so-everyday Ohioans to voice his support for Donate Life Ohio's 2010 Green Chair Campaign.
The group urges all Ohioans to not "let another chair go empty" by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor at donatelifeohio.org; a familiar message that gives hope to the nearly 3,000 Ohioans waiting for a live-saving transplant.
Visit Donate Life Ohio's YouTube channel to watch the video and subscribe to the channel to be notified as other campaign footage is released.
Throughout 2010, the Green Chair will make appearances across the state of Ohio giving others the chance to sit down to share their own stories and join the Ohio Organ, Eye and Tissue Donor Registry.
