Life Share University Each year thousands of Oklahoma high school students apply for their driver’s license or identification (ID) card. When they do, they are presented with the opportunity to join the LifeShare Donor Registry. Many students are unaware of what being a donor means and how they can potentially save the lives of fellow Oklahomans by checking “YES!” to donation. We provide information to students before they apply for their driver’s license allowing them to make an informed decision. By educating our youth about the importance of joining the LifeShare Donor Registry, we can help narrow the ever-widening gap between the escalating number of transplant candidates on the waiting list and life-saving donations.
