Since 1997, National Donor Sabbath Weekend provides an opportunity for faith leaders, donor families, transplant recipients, and donation/transplantation professionals to participate in programs to highlight the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation.
National Donor Sabbath Weekend starts today and ends November 16 – the three-day observance is intended to include the days of worship celebrated by all major religions in the United States.
Since donation is regarding by many religions as an act of kindness and generosity, most major religions support donation. This weekend is a chance for faith leaders to start or continue the conversation about donation.
