In May of 2012, Facebook added the ability for you to let others know you are an organ and tissue donor through your timeline. You can also access links to Register to become an organ and tissue donor through the site.

  1. Login to Facebook.
  2. Navigate to your Timeline.
  3. Under ‘Life Event’, navigate to ‘Health & Wellness’ and then select ‘Organ Donor.’

Facebook has more information on their Organ Donor Initiative.
