Instructions on How to Design a Card to Hand Out
(The card is used to express your need for a kidney transplant)

As we discuss in our workshops and webinars, letting others know about your need for a kidney transplant should be your primary objective when pursuing a living kidney transplant. Handing out information that describes your situation will help you spread the word.

The Living Kidney Donors Network (LKDN) has designed a business card that you could personalize and hand out to the people you and your advocates talk to. The front of the card includes your contact information…feel free to leave the LKDN website address as a resource. You could personalize the back of the card with additional information and include the name and phone number of the donor advocate at your hospital. You should first speak to your transplant coordinator to make sure that the donor advocate knows that they will receive calls requesting more information.

Many people who are looking into being a donor may feel more comfortable talking to a donor advocate.
