Celebrated annually in April, National Donate Life Month (NDLM) features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation. Did you know that over 2,500 people right here in our community are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant? You can be someone’s hero by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor at the driver license office or online at DonateLifeColorado.org or DonateLifeWyoming.org! This April we’re encouraging everyone to “Show Your Heart” in support of National Donate Life Month! Throughout the month we’ll be celebrating NDLM at events across Colorado and Wyoming. When you show your heart on your license, others will show their appreciation right back.
