CLEVELAND, Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today is National Pizza Day. And Marco's Pizza is using the day to kick off an awareness campaign on the life-saving benefits of being an organ donor.
From February 9 – 14, post a message for your Valentine on Marco's Pizza Facebook, Twitter or Instagram – using pictures with a heartfelt message and video to the one you love with #DONORDAY2017 and #PIZZAFORLIFE. And for your good deed in bringing awareness to organ donation, you'll have a chance to win Pizza for Life. You could also win specialty pizza certificates. You must be 18-years old to enter the sweepstakes and giveaway.
Donor Day is the same day as Valentine's Day, February 14th. While millions of Americans will show their love with heart-shaped candy and cards on Valentine's Day, Donor Day reminds us all what a heart and other organ donations can do to save lives. Donate Life and Marco's Pizza have partnered together to create an interesting way for men and women to send a message of both love and life at the same time.
Donate Life America is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit alliance of national organizations and state teams across the United States committed to increasing organ, eye, and tissue donation. Donate Life America manages and promotes the national brand for donation, Donate Life, and assists Donate Life State Teams and national partners in facilitating high-performing donor registries; developing and executing effective multi-media donor education programs; and motivating the American public to register now as organ, eye and tissue donors.
Marco's was founded by native Italian, Pasquale "Pat" Giammarco in 1978. Today, it's among the fastest-growing pizza franchises in the United States. The company has grown from its roots as a beloved Ohio brand to operate more than 790 stores across the country, and four countries.
