navbar_2014_lightLike lanterns illuminating the night sky above or the path before us, those who give and receive the gift of life Light Up the World with their compassion and courage. Individuals and families touched by organ and tissue donation and transplantation shine a light on us all.

The 2014 Donate Life Rose Parade Float entry features a festival of lanterns illuminating 30 riders—all grateful organ and tissue transplant recipients—and 12 living organ donors walking alongside to demonstrate their ongoing vitality. Five enormous lamps are adorned with 72 memorial floragraph portraits of deceased donors whose legacies of life shine brightly. The riders are seated throughout a dedication garden filled with thousands of roses bearing personal messages of love, hope and remembrance.

Donate Life’s Light Up the World float will be inspiring viewers on January 1st, 2014 at the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California.
