Donate Life Maryland “Likes” Heroes!

Donate Life Maryland Likes Heroes is a social media campaign to engage our public in the promotion of Donor Designations throughout Maryland during April 2011, Donate Life Month.  Here’s how it works:

Request a cape be mailed to you (free of charge) by e-mailing Then, follow these simple instructions:

1. Wear the cape to show you are a hero and support organ, eye and   tissue donation

2. Take a fun and respectful picture of yourself wearing the cape

3. Post your picture to the Donate Life Maryland Facebook Page with a comment to describe your location by April 30th

4. Encourage your Facebook friends to visit the Donate LifeMaryland page and “like” your picture by May 15th

5. The hero with the most “likes” on May 15th will win club box tickets behind home plate for the Orioles vs. Yankees game on Saturday, August 27, 2011.

Once you take a picture of yourself in the cape and post it to the Donate Life Maryland Facebook page, be sure to pass the cape to another hero to keep spreading the word about organ, eye and tissue donation during all of Donate Life Month!

Keep checking the Donate Life Maryland Facebook page throughout Donate Life Month to see all of our heroes and to also have a chance to win other great prizes!
