National Donate Life Month: Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness

Flag Raisings, Lighting Events & Proclamations

Regional and Community Support

Across Colorado and Wyoming, around 1,300 of our neighbors wait for a lifesaving organ transplant and thousands more are in need of healing tissue transplants. As we #ShineALight on the need throughout the month of April, we celebrate the regional and community support from people like you! Everyday heroes who say Yes to organ, eye and tissue donation and register their donation decision help us illuminate the darkest corner and end the waitlist.

Celebrate with us at by requesting your free lighting kit, sharing your support on social media and recognizing our community supporters and partners below in your local community.

Flag Raising Events

Flag Raisings are the cornerstone of National Donate Life Month. When a donation case occurs, a Donate Flag is often flown for 24 hours to honor the gift of life the individual gave through organ, eye or tissue donation. During the month of April, hospitals and community partners raise a flag as a display of unity, remembrance, hope and support while raising awareness and honoring those touched by donation and transplantation.  Go to https://webstore.online/donationmerchandise, for your own flag to display on your garden, house, car and more.

Proclamations in April for National Donate Life Month

The Proclamation project for National Donate Life Month started again in 2022 with a goal of raising awareness about the importance of registering as an organ, eye, and tissue donor in as many localities throughout the Donor Alliance service area as possible. What is a Proclamation?  It is a formal public statement typically issued by a mayor or governor to recognize the importance of a community for an event or major national observance. Some proclamations are often read during regular meetings or sessions. Please join Donor Alliance and the Donate Life State teams to a proclamation in your area.
