April is National Donate Life Month (NDLM) to honor those who have saved lives through the gift of donation, their families, and help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.
While we continued to take COVID-19 precautions, you can still help us honor your loved ones through our Facebook Group – STBTC Grief Support.
Here are some ways you can participate this week:
Saturday, April 10 – Volunteer Appreciation Day
Share a photo of your loved one or your family doing volunteer work (the photo doesn’t need to be recent!)
Sunday, April 11 – Create Donate Life Rocks
Paint a rock in honor of your loved one to put in your garden. If you’re in San Antonio, you can also bring it to our Donor Pavilion and place it in our Legacy Garden. Don’t forget to share a photo of your painted rock on our Facebook Group, or on your social media with #DonateLifeMonth.
Monday, April 12 – Donate Life Flag Raising Day
Share a photo of your flag with a few sentences about your loved one and #DonateLifeMonth. We will be posting our flag raising in the STBTC Grief Support Facebook group.
Tuesday, April 13 – Write a Message of Hope
Write a message about your loved one, to other families who may be going through their grief journey, or to those who may have received an organ, eye, or tissue donation. We will also have a bulletin board posted at our Donor Pavilion if you would like to leave a message.
Wednesday, April 14 – Thank Your Healthcare Heroes
Post a message of love to our healthcare heroes, who have worked so hard over the last year.
Thursday, April 15 – Donate Life Chalk
Get your sidewalk chalk out and create some Donate Life-inspired art!
Friday, April 16 – National Blue and Green Day
Wear your Donate Life shirt, or blue and green. Take a photo and post it to your social media with #DonateLifeMonth and why you support the organ, eye, and tissue registry.
