It was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. The day originated in Catalonia, where roses and books were given as gifts to loved ones on St George’s Day; a tradition started over 90 years ago. The aim of the day is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
In America 117,117 people are waiting for an organ with 18 of them dying each day as they wait. Someone is added to the waiting list for an organ every ten minutes. These lives could be saved if more people join the organ donation register. One person who chooses to donate their organs could save up to 8 lives. Last year alone organ donors made more than 28,000 transplants possible. Another one million people received cornea and other tissue transplants that helped them recover from trauma, bone damage, spinal injuries, burns, hearing impairments and vision loss. If you would like to become a donor with the possibility of saving up to 8 lives then you can go to the following websites www.organdonor.gov if you are in the USA or www.organdonation.nhs.uk if you are in the UK. For other countries around the world just search for the organ donation website for your country. Once you have registered then don’t forget to tell all your family and friends so they know your wishes and they may want to join themselves.
