In 2009, the American Transplant Foundation successfully ran legislation through the Colorado General Assembly to create Donate Life license plates in Colorado. The Delta County Independent profiled Lella, a young liver recipient, and her family with their plates this April during National Donate Life Month!
“…Recently the Donate Life license plate was released and when Lella’s family found out, they knew that it was one more way to promote knowledge about donation. “We thought what a great time to update everyone on how well she is doing and to let everyone know of the new license plates,” Lyndall said. “We signed the petition for the license plate last summer at the Donor Dash, a 5K race in Denver that we ran as ‘Lella’s Team.’ ”…”
