Donate Organ, get FREE funeral

The families of deceased have been offered free funeral. The offer is strictly in exchange with organ donation and in Britain only :
People could be rewarded with certificates and souvenirs such as T-shirts and mugs for signing up as organ donors, a report says. And the families of dead donors could benefit by having funeral expenses paid. The incentives suggested by the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, an independent think tank, herald a radical new approach to a desperate shortage of organs and other body tissue. Possibilities could range from higher expenses for donors, to state-run selling of organs, eggs and sperm or a free market.
