Please fill out the form to register as an organ and tissue donor. By registering as a donor you consent to donate your organs and tissues at the time of your death. Organs and tissues will be recovered for the purpose of transplantation, however, in the event a donated organ or tissue cannot be used for transplant, an effort will be made to use the donation for research.
Due to the pandemic, we have been 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 @donatelifems. 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
Show us your heart at the DMV = 30 minutes
**Please blur or cover all personal information in your posts**
Each quarter we will also highlight events or celebrations we’d like your help to promote:
Quarter 1 – National Donor Day on February 14 and Hero 100 Bike Ride March 5, 2022
Quarter 2 – National Donate Life Month events in April like Racing for Donation 5k/8k on April 2, 2022
Quarter 3 – National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month and DMV Appreciation Month
Quarter 4 – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, National Donor Sabbath and Giving Tuesday
No sign-up required. Start volunteering virtually today!
(Don’t forget to follow us, tag @donatelifems and use the hashtag #ShowYourHeart so we can find your posts and give you credit). You’ll earn a few service hours and spread the word about organ eye and tissue donation.

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.
