This is still one of the best websites that explains organ donation.

Most notably:

http://www.organtransplants.org/understanding/religion/ Religion and Organ and Tissue Donation

http://www.organtransplants.org/understanding/unos/ The Organ Transplant Waiting List

http://www.organtransplants.org/understanding/death/ Understanding Death Before Donation

(Can't believe I broke Epoman's "no color fonts" rule on one of my first posts...  :P)
