Liver transplantation, which has helped the co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, to increase the duration of his life a few years has helped inspire a new organ donation programsponsored by the most popular social network in the world, one made by Mark Young Zuckerberg or Facebook.
Just the young CEO of Facebook, in fact, said in an interview to ABC News , that his friendship with Steve Jobs did it reflect a lot since the former CEO of Apple was working on a project to increase the number of donors organs.
Zuckerberg never talked specifically with Steve Jobs of a program to promote organ donation through Facebook before Jobs died last October, but just the former CEO of Cupertino was publicly active in supporting and promoting the spread of this culture. Here are the words of Zuckerberg about it:
“Her story is just one of many stories of people who have succeeded, thanks to a transplant, make your life longer, but at the same time are extremely grateful to those who allowed them to do so, or their organ donors . “
In addition to the direct experience of Jobs, Zuckerberg has been much discussion with his girlfriend – who is currently studying medicine – and it is these two experiences have inspired the birth of the new program. With the new feature, Facebook users can share their status as a donor organ to spread the message of how important organ donation and the users themselves can completely control who can view their status as donors.
All this, therefore, comes mainly from the consciousness of Jobs and extreme gratitude towards the donor. Just think, in fact, that Jobs was a leading proponent of a California law, passed in 2010, which made it easier to proceed with the donation of organs for residents in the state of Silicon Valley.
