Days after Facebook launched an initiative to promote organ donations, donor registries are reporting a major uptick in the number of sign-ups, according to ABC News:

According to stats from Donate Life America, a nonprofit group partnering with the social network, California alone witnessed a 700 percent increase over the number of volunteers on a typical day.

Ten states said they'd gotten as many new donors on the campaign's first day as they normally do in an entire month. That's an incredible figure.
