Donate Life America Thanks DMV Partners Across the Country: DMVs are the Key to Saving Lives

(Richmond, VA—September 23, 2019) Donate Life America (DLA) and Donate Life State Teams are dedicating the week of September 23-27, 2019, to saying thank you to Motor Vehicle Departments (DMVs) across the country for their commitment to asking the donor registration question to DMV customers every day. The vast majority of donor registrations in the U.S. come through DMV and driver’s license partner transactions. DMV offices and their employees play an invaluable role in increasing the number of registered organ, eye and tissue donors. Through their dedication to the Donate Life mission, DMV leadership and staff help save and heal lives.

National DMV Appreciation Week is a one-week celebration held each year in the last week of September. During this week, the Donate Life Community celebrates this vital partnership through local events and outreach expressing gratitude to DMV and driver’s license partner staff and leadership across the country.

Donate Life America will be celebrating National DMV Appreciation Week by recognizing the regional and national winners of the 2019 DLA DMV Awards. These awards recognize both statewide DMV office efforts and individual dedication to successfully increase donor registration. DLA is grateful for the commitment of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) as a national partner supporting the role of DMVs in offering the donor registration opportunity.

The DLA DMV Awards are presented annually at the AAMVA Regional and international conferences. For a full list of 2019 award winners, please visit Congratulations to all of the award winners – and thank you for your dedication to helping save and heal lives through organ, eye and tissue donation!

Welcome Offers

You can now take advantage of a 200% welcome bonus on any deposit to your casino account. This is because many online casinos have increased their game rewards so that players will play more. However, this bonus is usually given at the start of the season or after your playing period is over.

This means that players with big money to lose should wait for the end of their playing season and play a game in the same amount as they played when the bonus was added. If you play more than you should, you will lose money which may be more than what you spent playing.

The bonuses are offered through a variety of methods. Some may be given through email, telephone or even by mailing an announcement to your casino. Some may also come through regular newsletters. Either way, it is not difficult to find out about these bonuses. There is no need to go to a casino that does not offer the bonus to its players.

Nowadays, many casinos offer their customers the opportunity to earn the bonus, either at the beginning of the season or after the season ends. You can make your decision on the best deal for you. As with all types of promotions, you must be careful of scams. Make sure you are dealing with a reputable casino and not just a cheap casino trying to get your money. If you have not made a deposit in the last three months, it is better if you stick with a casino that is new to you and offers a bonus.

Do not forget that the bonuses are based on the amount you play. You cannot increase the amount you deposit. However, you can increase the number of games you play each week. So, you can play five times a week and only pay half the original amount. You can use this money for a trip or buy gifts for your loved ones and friends. In addition, you can use the extra money to cover your bets.

In short, do not waste time searching for the bonus. Instead, use a website that offers free promotions and bonuses. Take your time and you will find the right website that will give you the bonus you deserve.

The only thing left to do is to take action when you find a casino offering the bonus. If you have made deposits in the past month or year, then it is better to wait for the end of the season. This way, you will not be competing with other players for the same bonuses and will be able to maximize your profits.

Always keep in mind that it will only be possible to receive these free bonus promotions and bonuses for playing at a casino if you have been a customer for some time. There are some websites that offer these bonuses for a limited period of time.
