Donate Life Month Resources for Community Partners

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. Partners of Donate Life NYS 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, giving hope to the 8,329 New Yorkers waiting for organ transplant and thousands of others in need of tissue and cornea transplants.

We know you’re busy-bees, so we’ve prepared resources to make it easy for our partners to celebrate Donate Life Month. By clicking the button below, you can access numerous resources including: social media posts and graphics, sample press releases, media talking points, testimonial videos, Dave Gray’s Story of Hope, facts about donation, frequently asked questions, contact information for local Donate Life organizations, a list of annual Donate Life observances, web banners, an image for TVs and computer monitors, and a Zoom background. Thank you for participating in Donate Life Month – we think you’re the bees-knees!
