As a conclusion to National Donate Life Month celebrations, now you can celebrate Donor Remembrance Day. Brought to us from the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations, observe this day to honor and celebrate Donor Heroes who have given the gift of life through organ, eye and tissue donation.
Donor Remembrance Day: Virtual Dedication Garden
Together we ‘plant’ forget-me-not flowers to symbolize that these heroes and their gifts will always be remembered. You can participate by requesting to ‘plant’ a forget-me-not flower in the virtual dedication garden in memory of your Donor Hero. Don’t forget to share the Donor Hero Remembrance Garden to your social media using #DonorRemembranceDay to honor your Donor Hero.
If you are able to, we encourage you to also plant real forget-me-not flowers in addition to honoring your Donor Hero in the virtual dedication garden. Sharing pictures and stories with others in your local community and connections on social media, honors the gift of life and Donor Heroes’ legacies.
