As new sources continue to be suggested, and old addresses corrected, here's a current update on all the resources we have found so far:

Another (expensive) jewelry source: www.Tiffany.com. Look under "necklaces and pendants" and hunt around. They sell pendants with a single "kidney bean" of gold, silver or jade.

Aluminum "bend on" bracelets saying "DONOR STRONG" are on sale from www.gearbubble.com at $19.95. They say it is a "limited time" offer.

Decals saying "Kidney Donor" with a drawing of a kidney, which can be put on car rear windows, coffee mugs, etc. can be purchased by going to www.ebay.com and searching "Kidney Donor Decal"
Bobbi-Jo Zarecki has had custom-made stickers about organ donation made at www.makestickers.com . At that site you can design your own organ donation stickers, large or small, in many shapes, and even include dates and names if you wish.

     I have noticed that the connection listed above for "Organ Donation" type Christmas tree ornaments ("atomicjukebox...") does not seem to be working now. However www.donationmerchandise.com IS now selling a limited number of it's 2016 "Donate Life" ornament.
Go to the site and type "Donate Life 2016 Ornament" in the Search Box.

Another source of kidney donor decals is: Lindsaynicolebowlin@gmail.com . She can customize your decals with dates, names or symbols. Profits go to organ donation cause.
