The Gift of Donating Life

While thousands of patients in the country benefit from organ transplantation, the number of Americans still needing life-saving organs remains significantly high.

April is National Donate Life Month, and we could not be more grateful to all those who heard the call and gave a gift of life. There are several reasons for donating, and after reading about the impact, we encourage you to donate.

Donate Life America is an organization committed to helping those needing an organ, eye, or tissue donation. As a result of their efforts, National Donate Life Month was established in 2003 to raise awareness about donations, encourage people to register as donors and recognize those that have saved lives through donations.

Giving the gift of life

While thousands of patients in the country benefit from organ transplantation, the number of Americans still needing life-saving organs remains significantly high. Here are some actions you can take to improve the outcome of those patients:

  • Register to be an organ donor. It only takes 30 seconds, and you can sign up anytime.

  • Consider a living donation. It could be one of the most beautiful acts a person can do. For example, you can donate blood, tissue, a kidney, or a portion of your liver.

  • Observe National Blue & Green Day. By wearing those colors on April 14, you can help to raise awareness about the importance of registering and donating.

  • Share your donation decision. Talking with your family and friends might inspire others to register as well.
