April is National Donate Life Month and the Okaloosa County Tax Collector's Office is teaming up with Donate Life Florida to raise awareness about the need for Florida residents to register as organ donors.

Trisha King is a public education coordinator with Lifequest Organ Recovery Services. She joined us this morning with more on the effort.

In 2013:
There are 5,000 people on the waiting list for an organ.
More than 24,000 people have recieved lifesaving organs.
Of those, 1,688 were transplanted in Florida.
There are 18 more added to the need list each day.

There is a need for more donors. If you are interested, click on the link below.
