Here in NM, the Donate Life plate is available for a ONE-time fee of only $12.00! 

Other states that offer them (fees vary) include:  Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Arizona.  There may be others also; this is what I found with a quick Google search.

No delayed gratification for me -- I wanted one RIGHT AWAY!  I just sent in a form (downloaded off the Internet) and a check and got the plate in the mail about a week later.  Super quick and easy.  May be different in other states, though.

We seem to have every other "cause" but nothing for organ donation.

Specialized License Plates - CALIFORNIA
Special interest license plates have a background image and help fund a specific cause:

Environmental: environmental programs (only available personalized)
Memorial: scholarships for children of 9/11 victims
Arts Council: art programs
Whale Tail: California Coastal Commission
Collegiate: need-based scholarships and grants
Lake Tahoe Conservancy: lake conservation programs
Yosemite Foundation: park wildlife and habitat fund
Firefighters: firefighter memorial programs
Help Our Kids: child health and safety programs
Olympics: training center in San Diego
Veterans Organization: county veteran's services
There are at least 13 more plates available, including Pearl Harbor Survivor, Horseless Carriage, Antique Motorcycle, and others. For these, fill out a Special License Plate Application.

:yahoo; I checked with the State of Maryland and this tag is offered.  :thx; I'll have mine in February. I just think this is such a good idea for getting the word out. How many people don't read different license tags.  :cuddle;
