National Donate Life Month

Observed in April each year, National Donate Life Month helps to encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to honor those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

Ways to Get Involved:

There are many ways you can help to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation.

  • Share your story!
    • Use #NDLM2023: Share your unique donation/transplant story with the world by using #NDLM2023.
