National Donate Life Month

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) was established by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations in 2003. Observed in April each year, National Donate Life Month helps raise awareness about donation, encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to honor those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

Donors are SuperStars!

Did you know that April is one of the best times of the year to stargaze?  

This April, we invite you to look up to the night sky and the billions of stars that make up the universe. Stars remind us that even in the darkest night, there is light.

Your decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor gives hope and light to the 100,000 people on the national transplant waiting list who are waiting for a second chance at life. That’s why donors are superstars.

This National Donate Life Month, join us in helping save and heal lives: register your decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor, learn more about living donation, and champion the Donate Life cause. 

This National Donate Life Month, we ask you to be a part of this interconnected life-sustaining community by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor; becoming educated about living donation; and championing the Donate Life cause.

“Not only do we live among the stars, the stars live within us.” 

–Neil deGrasse Tyson
