April is National Donate Life Month

April is National Donate Life Month. It’s a month to raise awareness about donation, encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to honor those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

April 14 is Blue and Green Day in which people are encouraged to wear blue and green to engage in sharing the Donate Life message.

Hot Springs will have a Donor Awareness Walk on April 14 at 11:00am, and coworkers there can wear their blue Best Places to Work tshirts. The walk will begin at the flag pole at the hospital.

For National Donate Life Month (NDLM) 2023, Donate Life America was inspired by the natural world of a pond coming to life in the spring.

Frogs (and toads!) are a sign of healing and renewal, and water lilies represent hope. The lily pads we see on the surface of a pond are part of a much larger plant rooted below the water. The water lily plant reminds us of the support and collaboration needed for hope to bloom.

This National Donate Life Month, we ask you to be a part of this interconnected life-sustaining community by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor; becoming educated about living donation; and championing the Donate Life cause.
