With the ongoing spread of COVID-19, we will be observing National Donate Life Month online. Please join us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to help us honor donors, recipients, and their families and caregivers. We will also be recognizing the clinical teams continuing their dedicated work during this time to help honor the gift of donation and save the lives of those waiting for a second chance at life. We are encouraging the public and the donation and transplantation community to cancel all in-person events for National Donate Life Month. Our priority is the safety and health of both the public and professional Donate Life communities. In accordance with the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we ask that everyone take this action to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
For National Donate Life Month 2020, Donate Life America was inspired by the springtime scene of a garden. A garden and the insects within it serve as symbols of hope, courage and transformed life — themes repeatedly found within the donation and transplantation journey.
The Donate Life garden depicts an ecosystem of plants, insects, and other components working together to form an interconnected living system. Similarly, we each have the potential to nurture and enrich our communities through organ, eye and tissue donation. This National Donate Life Month, we ask you to be a part of this lifesaving and healing garden by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor; becoming educated about living donation, and championing the Donate Life cause.
Thank you for your efforts in promoting organ, eye and tissue donation and the importance of registering your decision.
