It’s National Donate Life Month! One of the most important months of the year. Established by Donate Life America, this month encourages Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. We also celebrate those who have given the ultimate gift of eye, organ and tissue donation.
The theme of 2019’s National Donate Life Month goes hand in hand with American Transplant Foundation’s Team Transplant: Bicycles; as in “Life is a beautiful ride.” Donate Life America explains it perfectly, “Like the donation and transplantation journey, a bicycle serves as a symbol of progress, renewal and the moving circle of life.” How inspirational is that?
Donate Life America continues, “Bicycles come in all styles, shapes, and sizes, but each is comprised of the same components, essential to supporting the rider and converting their energy into motion. Similarly, organ, eye, and tissue donation offer many ways to give hope, support and strength to patients waiting, recipients and donor families.”
I don’t think we could’ve said it better ourselves.
Each and every one of us has the potential to help those who are searching for eye, organ and tissue donation. Whether that’s signing up to be a donor, volunteering at an American Transplant Foundation event, or through a monetary donation, we can all help give the gift of Life.
In honor of National Donate Life Month, please consider joining Team Transplant on June 2, 2019 to help raise funds for the American Transplant Foundation. Grab your family and friends, and cycle for life! More information can be found HERE.
