There are several groups on facebook that are dedicated to embryo donation/embryo adoption.  You can search for those and start there.  Also websites like NRFA.org and miracleswaiting.org also give a lot of information on how the process works.  These websites are american (the process is essentially the same in Canada).  The process itself is pretty simple.  Find someone you want to donate to.  Get a legal contract, sign it, ship embryos if needed and recipient transfers the embryos.  Good luck!
