Organ, eye and tissue donors are the heroes who help heal our community. By signing up to be a donor, you could save the lives of eight people and enhance the lives of at least an additional seventy-five. This heroic act all starts with one yes! Say yes to be a registered organ, eye and tissue donor today!


  • April is Donate Life Month

    “For National Donate Life Month 2020, Donate Life America was inspired by the springtime scene of a garden. A garden and the insects within in 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. We wish you a Happy National Donate Life Month. Thank you for your efforts in promoting organ, eye and tissue donation and the importance of registering your decision.”


  • Kids Talk Donation


    National Blue and Green Day is part of Donate Life America’s Donate Life Month—celebrated in April each year, Donate Life Month features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation. For the 2019 National Donate Life Month theme, Donate Life America was inspired by bicycles and the phrase “Life is a beautiful ride.” Like the donation and transplantation journey, a bicycle serves as a symbol of progress, renewal and the moving circle of life. Blue & Green Day is on April 17, 2020…Spread the word!
