You Could Save A Life
Small Group Communication 210
Today I’d like to talk to you about first, the need for organ donors in our area, second, how you can become an organ donor after you die and finally, how your family and organ donor recipients benefit from your donation. I. Attention Step:

With the rising need for organs, many patients lose their battle because there are not enough organs being donated.
III. Satisfaction Step: I’ll begin by telling you about the need for organ donors. A.
