Dear [NAME],

I am writing to request the temporary placement of [X#], 3”x3”, biodegradable, wooden heart(s) in [SPECIFIC LOCATION/PARK NAME] in celebration of April as National Donate Life Month.

As an [ADVOCATE FOR LIFE/CONNECTION TO DONATION] and resident of [JURISDICTION], I would like our community to participate in the state-wide Show Your Heart Project by allowing the temporary placement of the wooden symbols.

The Show Your Heart Project is an initiative of Donor Alliance, the region’s federally-designated organ procurement organization, which aims to spread the altruistic nature of organ, eye and tissue donation throughout our community. The project centers on the grassroots distribution of personalized messages of inspiration to show appreciation for those who have registered as organ, eye and tissue donors and inspire others to consider such an act of generosity. Additional information is available at

A simple statement of permission via email is all that is needed to ensure our inclusion in this initiative. A sample is provided here for your convenience.

I, [NAME], grant permission for wooden hearts to be placed in [SPECIFIC LOCATION NAME] in accordance with the Show Your Heart Project.

Thank you for your consideration of this request and I look forward to respectfully facilitating this inspirational project in our community.


[Your full name]

In conjunction with Donor Alliance
