Colorado Gears Up For National Donate Life Month

This April, Donate Life Colorado is excited to celebrate National Donate Life Month! This year we’re inviting everyone across the state to Show Your Heart for organ, eye and tissue donation as part of our invites residents to take part in the Show Your Heart Project with activities throughout the month.

The Show Your Heart Project spotlights the altruism of organ, eye and tissue donation in communities across our wonderful state. We’ve hidden (in plain sight) hearts all over Colorado bearing personalized messages of inspiration to show appreciation for those who have signed up to become organ, eye and tissue donors and inspire others to consider such an act of generosity. If you find a heart, share a photo of it on social media using #ShowYourHeart and tell your followers why you support organ, eye and tissue donation. After that you can add your personal note and leave as an inspirational surprise for another to find. You can also take the heart or show the heart on your license at one of our partner businesses for special discounts! Learn more about the Show Your Heart project here.
