Celebrated November 15-17, National Donor Sabbath (NDS) is a time for the faithful from all denominations to come together and raise awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation to save lives. The national event is observed on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday two weekends before Thanksgiving.
This three-day observance seeks to include the days of worship for major religions practiced in the United States. During NDS, faith leaders from many religions, donor families, transplant recipients, and donation and transplantation professionals participate in services and programs to educate the public about the need for the lifesaving and healing gifts passed to others through transplantation, while also encouraging people to sign up in their state registry as organ, eye and tissue donors.
