Brazilian Soccer Club Recife Urges Fans To Sign Up As Organ Donors

This is a very admirable thing for a club to do. Being an organ donor costs a person nothing but yet it can save so many lives. This campaign has been so successful that 66,000 have signed up so far and the transplant waiting list in Recife, Brazil’s fifth-largest city, has dropped to zero. It’s amazing to see a soccer club using its power and influence to push such an important agenda. Soccer clubs around the world should take note about how they can use their status to change the world around them. Well done Recife and its fans, well done.
