Donate Life Ambassador Program

MORA volunteers play a vital role in our efforts to spread awareness on organ, eye and tissue donation to save lives. Our volunteers help to extend our reach throughout Mississippi by participating in registry drives, speaking engagements and other special projects. As MORA strives to provide education to medical professionals, donor families and the people of Mississippi, our Donate Life Ambassador Volunteer Program provides opportunities for volunteers to utilize their skills and talents in our organization. Based on your interests, skills and availability, you may be matched with specific projects in our community outreach department. We ask that Donate Life Ambassadors make a regular commitment to volunteer at various MORA events throughout the year such as registration drives, health fairs, high school and college education, and participation at special events including multi-cultural and faith-based events.

Anyone can help promote and educate about the importance of donation. Some volunteers may have a personal story to tell to inspire others and some may simply see donation as a worthy cause. We welcome anyone that would like to join our volunteer team.

Current Volunteer Needs

Virtual Volunteer Program

Due to the pandemic, we are unable to engage the public through our traditional outreach efforts and events. However, we have a unique opportunity in this season to promote the mission of saving and healing lives through organ, eye and tissue donation virtually!

The Virtual Volunteer program is designed to promote donation through social media platforms. Volunteers may share our social media posts or share their donation and transplantation story or stories on donation on their personal social media accounts. All shares and stories will need to include the hashtag #DonateLifeMS and #ShowYourHeart and must tag Donate Life Mississippi. This will allow us to track your posts and to log your time. Each post will count for a certain number of minutes toward volunteer hours, for example:

Social Media Shares = 15 minutes

Unique Share or Personal Story = 30 minutes

Each quarter we will highlight an event or celebration to promote. This quarter we will promote National Donor Day which is February 14.
