National Donate Life Month
April 1 – April 30
An entire month honoring those who saved lives through the gift of organ, eye, and tissue donation.
Each year during the month of April, Donate Life New York State (NYS) celebrates National Donate Life Month, raising awareness of the lifesaving impact of organ, eye, and tissue donors, and honoring those who have saved lives through the gift of donation. Throughout the month, we join donation advocates across the nation to remind the public that we all have the power to save lives by registering as organ, eye and tissue donors. We also focus efforts on raising critical funds to continue helping those in need of lifesaving transplants
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.
