It’s beginning to feel more like spring as we move into April, soon enough we will be able to smell that fresh earthy pungency sent in the morning air and hear the birds singing in the as we wake up. With spring’s arrival, it’s time to think GREEN!
April 21-28 is National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Week (NOTDAW) this year’s theme is “Retire your Donor Card“. YES, retire your donor card as the cards are invalid now. Due to the donor cards not always been available when the information was needed the process has changed a little to make being a donor more convenient. With the new donor registration, your consent is stored with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database so it is available when needed. The best part of this of this change is you can register on-line, it takes less than three minutes to click become an organ donor.
During the week of April 21-28, I will be sharing stories of individuals that have journeyed through The Gift of Life. Subscribe to my blog or check back during that week, because you won’t want to miss out on these incredible heart touching stories.
To show your support towards these individuals and NOTDAW wear GREEN and let’s see how GREEN our communities can get by raising awareness of Organ Donation!
