National Donate Life Month: Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Month

#ShowYourHeart For National Donate Life Month this April organ donation awareness month

Colorado and Wyoming are two of the most supportive states in the country when it comes to signing up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor. Thanks to the generosity of 215 organ donors last year, 622 people right here in our community got a second chance at life. During these tough, uncertain times, let’s show that love for our community and give hope to those waiting by sharing our support for organ, eye and tissue donation this April!

How do I participate in National Donate Life Month?

You can #ShowYourHeart for National Donate Life Month by sharing why you signed up as an organ, eye and tissue donor with friends. It’s super easy! Just upload your photo, customize it and share why you are a donor! Then share on your social media to encourage your followers to give the gift of life by signing up as an organ, eye and tissue donor!
