April Is National Donate Life Month

April is National Donate Life Month. A month designated to raise awareness in the importance of being an organ and tissue donor. Rarely can we do something so easy, that can have such a profound impact. Hot Springs is leading the charge in joining this month-long awareness campaign.

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) is celebrated in April each year to help encourage people to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

For the 2018 National Donate Life Month artwork, Donate Life America was inspired by the image of a rainbow and Maya Angelou’s quote, “Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”

Often following a storm, the presence of a rainbow provides optimism and motivates us to endure through dark times. Similarly, organ, eye and tissue donation is the bridge of comfort and hope between one family’s mourning and another’s healing — turning tragedy into renewed life. The vibrant Donate Life rainbow in the National Donate Life Month artwork rises from stormy clouds, recognizing that it takes both rain and light to create the gift of a rainbow.
