After speaking with Ms. Jackson, I was joined in the studio by Qiana Crenshaw and Ashley Panahagahi students at Clark-Atlanta University who participated in the LifeLink Foundation Annual Battle for Life Campus Challenge with CAU won previous year by registering 200 people to become organ donors.
Gavsie said that Boulet, who had signed up as an organ donor on his 21st birthday just a few weeks before the crash, "has left a legacy, and he is an example to all Canadians".
The representative of the medical organization Trillium Gift of Life Network in Ontario has advised that Sunday only 182 people have registered online as a donor, although since March 25, there were only 67 new volunteers.
"On that day, the number of new registrations in Ontario was four times what we typically see on a Sunday".
It means people would be automatically enrolled into the organ donor register, unless they state otherwise.
You can go to www.giftoflife.on.ca to find out more about signing up.
Lee Ellis, a 55-year-old dog walker in the Toronto area, said she had been thinking about becoming an organ donor for a while, but only got around to it this weekend after coming across a tweet encouraging others to follow Boulet's lead.
A flag raising ceremony was held Tuesday afternoon outside the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute to celebrate "National Donate Life" month. The students share with me how the campaign became personal as Ashley Panahagahi has family members in need of organ donation.
"Today, approximately 117,000 people are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant", Poythress said.
Over 15,000 people are on the wait list for a transplant in Ontario, with, on average, one person dying every three days "just waiting", said Gavsie.
They want to remind people it only takes one person to save a life. "Each of us has such power to save lives, to soften the grief of our families, to take away from them the burden of not knowing what our wishes are".
