Hearts for Russ Foundation, Long Island TRIO and film producer Michael Drucker release new PSAs featuring transplant recipients

Donate Life NYS is grateful to the Hearts for Russ Foundation, Long Island TRIO and film producer Michael Drucker for putting together the PSAs shown below, featuring three young transplant recipients saved by “Someone Like You.” Alternate versions of each story were produced to be played at DMV offices where many New Yorkers make the decision to register as organ and tissue donors. Thank you to all involved in this project!

Watch and share these beautiful PSAs!
