Legislation sponsored by Senator Kemp Hannon and Assemblyman Sam Hoyt in late 2003 signed into law a special license plate dedicated to the issue of organ and tissue donation. Twenty dollars of the annual fee for this plate, designed by the Department of Motor Vehicles and the New York Alliance for Donation, supports the Life...Pass It On Trust Fund. This fund is administered by the Commissioner of Health and is specifically earmarked for increasing and promoting organ and tissue donor awareness and education projects as well as for maintenance and operation of the New York State Donate Life registry.
The following link will take you to a section of the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles website where you can order custom license plates. Scroll down the choices of custom plates that support a cause until you find the one that says Life...Pass It On. By selecting this custom plate you will help increase awareness of the need for organ, eye and tissue donation just by driving your car!
