Privacy Settings

  • Remember you can always control who you share your donor status with.
  • To select who can see your donor status, click on the “Privacy Control.”
  • You can make it public or limit it to just a small group of friends or just family.

When you are done:

  • Select 'Save.' Your organ donor status will appear both on your Timeline and in your 'About' section.

Other Useful Information:

  • If a friend has added their donor status to their Timeline, you may see it in your Newsfeed. You can add your donor status to your Timeline from there by clicking “Share your organ donor status.”

Share this information with everyone you know and remind them to "like" the Donate Life America Facebook page and Gift of Life Donor Program Facebook page, once they've checked their donor status on Facebook or through their state registry, if they have not officially registered in their state.
