Donate Life Month Resources for Legislators

2022 Donate Life Month Theme: Bee a Donor!

The theme of 2022’s Donate Life Month, “Bee a Donor,” was inspired by the vital role bees play in sustaining life. Bees are a small but powerful force, working together with dedication, collaboration, and a strong sense of community. As a vital partner of Donate Life NYS, elected officials play a significant role in our interconnected effort to save lives by making the public aware of the opportunity to register their decision to “bee” a donor. On behalf of New York’s donation and transplant community, we thank you for the lifesaving work you do every day!

We know you’re busy-bees, so we’ve prepared resources to make it easy for legislators to celebrate Donate Life Month.

Thank you for participating in Donate Life Month – we think you’re the bees-knees!
