Friday is national "Donate Life: Blue and Green Day," and people are encouraged to wear those colors to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation.

Susan Gunderson, the CEO of Life Source, joined Chris Egert in the studio to talk about how people can become donors and how donating organ, eye and tissue can help others.

More than 3,100 Minnesotans are waiting for a life-saving transplant.
