Donate Life America is a nonprofit organization increasing the number of donated organs, eyes and tissue available to save and heal lives through transplantation while developing a culture where donation is embraced as a fundamental human responsibility.

The Donate Life Maryland initiative was announced Friday with a press conference at the MDOT MVA headquarters in Glen Burnie, and will run throughout the year. “With thousands of people currently in need of life-saving transplants, our goal is to encourage as many people as possible to selflessly register as donors,” said Jim Ford, Executive Director of Donate Life Maryland.
You can donate old tools to Habitat for Humanity or any other construction-focused local charity. Before You Donate: You don't have to do much except box your tools up. Just make sure you don't have anything dangerous floating around in a box in case of someone roots around, i.e., small saws, nails, etc. Contain those items or label them and donate them separately.
