Shock Support Gift of Life
Founded in 1993 with a Detroit branch added two years later, MOTTEP (Minority Organ and Tissue Transplant Education Program) is the first national organization designed to educate minority communities about organ/tissue donation and transplantation. It aims to address the No. 1 problem in transplantation - the dwindling number of organ and tissue donors.
On May 20, Alexis spoke at Gift of Life’s 2009 Lifesavers Breakfast to encourage everyone to “get in the game and help save lives” by adding his or her name to the Michigan Organ Donor Registry. See photos from the breakfast to the right.
You too can become an organ/tissue donor simply by visiting the link below, which will let Gift of Life know you heard about organ donation through the Detroit Shock: www.giftoflifemichigan.org.
To support Alexis and Gift of Life you can attend the Shock game at The Palace Aug. 9 against the Chicago Sky, which will include a Gift of Life seating section in the lower level. Register for organ/tissue donation and receive a $38 seat for only $20! To purchase tickets simply fax this registration form to Samantha Hicks at 248.377.3260.
Gift of Life members will also take part in a Family Fun Tunnel and Ball Exchange before the game. Bring proof of your organ/tissue donation to the game and you also will receive a free Gift of Life T-shirt (while supplies last). Support a great cause while enjoying some great basketball!
