In 1997, TransLife and the University of Central Florida (UCF) created the first Get Carded program to unite the campus community in support of organ and tissue donation. With the leadership of Donate Life Florida, the Get Carded program has expanded to several campuses statewide.
Get Carded is a student-driven campaign that emphasizes peer-to-peer education, which forms the cornerstone of the program augmented by campus media communications, an ongoing public relations effort, and direct mail appeals. Activities are tailored by students to help achieve the best possibility of success. Student committees work with liaisons from local donor programs to budget, plan, implement and evaluate educational efforts.
