"It's such an easy thing that everyone can try to do to help", Stokke, 25, said in a phone interview.

For the first year ever, more than 1,500 people in the United Kingdom donated their organs after they died, with the number rising by 11 percent over the previous year.

"Each of us has such power to save lives, to soften the grief of our families, to take away from them the burden of not knowing what our wishes are".
