Many Canadians made a decision to become organ donors, inspired by the example of the young Logan Boulet team Humboldt Broncos, who was killed in a bad accident in Saskatchewan. As a part of its pilot project called "university students organ donation campaign", the DMER has sent "organ donation pledge forms" to Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), Nashik and the forms will be distributed among the principals of colleges coming under MUHS.
"Around three people who could benefit from a donated organ still die a day". "We're there from the beginning of the process to as much as two years out or longer for families that want to keep in contact with us or want to come to events that honor those donors".

According to reports, only 20% of Canadians have card potential organ donors, although, according to surveys, 90% of the population support this initiative.
However, the same figures released in December 2017 revealed approximately 4,500 patients were still waiting for transplants, with 260 Canadians dying while waiting for a transplant.
"This transplant means life extension, life extension is what it really means to me", organ recipient Charles Campbell said.
