Happy Donate Life Month, Flags Across America  |  April 1, 2011

April is National Donate Life Month (NDLM) and was instituted by Donate Life America and its members in 2003, and grew out of the federally proclaimed National Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Awareness Week (NOTDAW). NDLM features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to become donors.

Additionally, this year there is a national initiative, Flags Across America,  in which hospitals and other organizations will raise Donate Life flags to honor and celebrate organ, tissue and eye donors and recipients. Already media coverage is popping up on the campaign, like this story about Erlanger hospital in Tennessee and this story about Seymour hospital in Connecticut.

Encourage participation from hospitals and organizations in your communities to help spread awareness for donation during the month of April!  Visit Donate Life for more information on the campaign.
