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!
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!
As supporters of organ, eye and tissue donation, we can INSPIRE OTHERS to save lives! Please #ShowYourHeart by sharing your customized photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with your friends and followers.

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) aims to spread awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation and honor those who gave the gift of life. This observance has been celebrated every April since 2003, when it was established by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations. Here in our community, NDLM is celebrated by Coloradoans and Wyomingites alike showing their heart in support for organ, eye and tissue donation.
