As we close out this year’s National Donate Life Month (NDLM), the team at Donor Alliance is incredibly thankful for the amazing partnerships, immense support and strong advocates throughout the month of April who helped make the month a huge success in Colorado and Wyoming. NDLM aims to encourage Americans to sign up to be organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.
In honor of NDLM, hospitals across Colorado and Wyoming hosted flag raising ceremonies and engaging light displays throughout the month to help honor those who’ve given the gift of life through organ and tissue donation, celebrate the transplant recipients whose lives have been saved and recognize those who continue to wait for a transplant.
DMV partners throughout Colorado and Wyoming, showed their support for donation and transplantation by joining in on the celebrations! From displaying educational materials, to decorating local driver license offices and dressing up in blue and green on National Blue & Green Day, our DMV partners played an integral role raising awareness for organ, eye and tissue donation in April.”
We’ve gathered a selection of some of our favorite stories and coverage from throughout the month Hearing the impact that donation has had on individuals, families and the Colorado and Wyoming communities has been an immense and powerful aspect of the month.
