Apr 12

A National Event for Everyone

Donate Life Flag Raising Day

LifeSource will be live-streaming across our social media channels a flag raising ceremony on April 12 at 10:08 a.m. Everyone is welcome join in and raise or show their own Donate Life flag wherever they are – home, clinic, office, etc.

This simultaneous flag raising across the country provides an opportunity for all donation and transplantation partners to come together to:  

  • Honor deceased donors/donor families and living donors. 
  • Experiential way to raise awareness of activities honoring donors at hospitals. 
  • Inspire others to register as a donor. 

 

Why April 12 at 10:08 a.m.? 

Donate Life America included a Donate Life flag raising day on April 12, as part of the National Blue & Green Spirit Week. The 10:08 time symbolizes: (1) A new name is added to the wait list every 10 minutes and (2) 1 organ donor can 8 eight lives.
