Happy Valentine's Day...and also Happy National Donor Day!

Posted by Rosemary, Volunteer Mentor @rosemarya, Feb 13 6:30pm

Every year on February 14th, National Donor Day is an observance dedicated to spreading awareness and education about organ, eye and tissue donation.
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.

What comes to your mind on National Donor Day? What would you like to share?

❤Thank you to the Gift of Life Transplant House for permission to share this cute little guy!

@rosemarya I am grateful to have the chance to register as a donor for any needed organs or tissue/bone, which I did several decades ago. I am ever-so-grateful to the young man who in death donated his kidneys and pancreas, my husband receiving a kidney from him. In their grief, his family gifted others.

I would like to say to everyone is, that if you haven't, please consider becoming a donor. Blood, bone marrow, anything will help those in need. Put your wishes in writing and let your family know.
