TOPIC: Organ Donating

ORGANIZATION: Problem/ Solution

SPECIFIC PURPOSE: I would like my audience to believe that acquiring information about organ donating will save lives and encourage people to donate.

INTRODUCTION:

II. The second part of the problem is that people are unaware of the organization called Earth Angels.

1. It is a non-profit organization that promotes organ, tissue and blood donation.
2. It consists of more than 25 volunteers between the ages of 16-17. Their purpose is to educate the public on organ donating and help answer any questions so they can make the decision that is right for them.
3. According to Earth Angels in 2003, it is imperative to learn about organ donating because, you are more likely to need an organ transplant, than to become and organ donor.

Transition: Earth Angels is one of many organizations that help promote organ donating, but people are still unaware and uneducated on organ donating. I feel that a solution must be made in order for more people to donate and increase the education about organ donating.

III. The solution that I propose is that we educate the world about donating organs. This will be done showing educational commercials
