Celebrate National Donor Day

February 14th– cue the red and pink hearts, along with images of Cupid’s arrow that seem to be everywhere leading up to the big day. But did you know National Donor Day takes place on the same day as Valentine’s Day? Help Gift of Life get the word out!

Both have the same underlying message- spread the love! What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than to spread awareness to loved ones about giving the ultimate act of love- donation. In the United States alone, a staggering amount of individuals are waiting for a life-saving transplant- over 115,000.  In our region alone, there are 6,500 people on the transplant waiting list.

Take the time to spread the word about organ donation by sending a Valentine’s Day eCardto your family and friends. By sending a Gift of Life Donor Program eCard, you’re not only letting your loved ones know how much you care for them but you are raising awareness that may be key in an individual being able to celebrate another Valentine’s Day.

Along with sending a personal message,the eCard also contains the link to register online to become an organ and tissue donor.  In 90 seconds, family and friends can register to become a donor!

Help the Gift of Life Donor Program spread the love and word about donation by sending your loved ones an eCard today!
