02/13/2023 “National Donor Day” By Kaylee McGrath

Donating various organs, blood, platelets, and bone marrow is a wonderful way of saving a life. Please consider and save a life today and read more about this important awareness day!

National Donor Day is an observance, dedicated to spreading awareness and education about organ, eye, and tissue donation. National Donor Day is observed every year on February 14th. Started in 1998 by the Saturn Corporation and its partner, the United Auto Workers, and is supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

By educating and sharing the Donate Life message, this very important day along with everyone, we can each take small steps every day to help save and heal more lives, and honor the donor’s legacy of generosity and compassion. National Donor Day is a time to focus on all types of donations, e.g., organ, eye, tissue, blood, platelets, and marrow.

National Donor Day is also a day to recognize those who have given and received the gift of life through organ, eye, and tissue donation, are currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant, and those who died waiting because an organ was not donated in time.
