A: Prospective organ donors shouldn't wait to register when they renew their license, Tracy G. Ide, public affairs coordinator with Lifelink, told Q&A on the News in an email. You can register at donatelifegeorgia.org or by calling 1-800-544-6667 to receive an enrollment form. Georgia's Department of Driver Services (DDS) no longer puts "organ donor" on licenses, instead printing the word "donor" with a red heart. Even though the wording is different, it puts the donor's name into Georgia's Organ & Tissue Donor Registry, which is the database used by LifeLink in the case of death.
