New license plate celebrates organ donation

The new plate, available after April 1, 2015, helps kick off a month-long celebration that showcases the various perspectives of those touched by donation and transplantation.

Circuit Clerk Dennis Loy is recognizing National Donate Life Month this April. Every year since 2002, April has been filled with stories to spread the lifesaving message of donation in order to motivate people to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors. This year is especially exciting as the release date for the new Donate Awareness plate, which will be launched on April 1, 2015. Everyone can register as a donor today at or by saying "Yes" when they renew their driver's license.

The Donate Life plate encourages individuals to put the gift of donation into perspective, stating "Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Saves Lives." This statement illustrates the grandeur of what a simple "Yes" at the driver's license office has the ability to do. Similarly, it gives passionate individuals the opportunity to publicly show their support for this worthy cause. The new plates will be available in the County Clerk's office after April 1, 2015.

Dennis Loy has been a longtime supporter of organ donation, working with the KY Circuit Clerks' Trust for Life. Each day, the driver's license office helps to save lives by growing the confidential Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

"The mission is easy to stand behind, as we all know someone who has been touched by the gift of donation and miracle of transplantation. It is an honor to help save lives and educate the public about the important of organ donation through the dollars we collect at driver's license and by growing the registry. We ask every person that comes in if they would like to be registered organ donor," explains Loy.
