Celebrate National Donate Life Month

April is National Donate Life Month (NDLM), a time when we celebrate the organ, eye, and tissue donor “SuperStars” who give the generous gift of life through organ transplantation. This year’s theme, “Donors are SuperStars,” is fitting given that more than 23,000 people gave the gift of life in 2023, making over 46,000 transplants possible.

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) features an entire month of activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to honor those that have saved lives through the gift of donation. Celebrations throughout NDLM include:


Donate Life Living Donor Day – April 3, 2024 | Join us in thanking all living donors for their lifesaving generosity! Click to download Donate Life Living Donor Day social media graphics to share with your community.


National Donate Life Blue & Green Day– April 12, 2024 | On National Donate Life Blue & Green Day, the public is encouraged to wear blue and green and to engage in sharing the Donate Life message and promoting the importance of registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor.




Blue & Green Spirit Week– April  6–12, 2024 | Each day of the week leading up to National Donate Life Blue & Green Day is dedicated to a special theme, and will include: recognizing donors, volunteers and healthcare heroes; giving hope to those waiting; and engaging the public in fun at-home activities.




National Pediatric Transplant Week– April 21–27, 2024 | National Pediatric Transplant Week focuses on the powerful message of ending the pediatric transplant waiting list. Throughout the week, clinical partners share their innovative work and patient stories (candidates and recipients), donor families whose children have saved and healed lives through organ, eye, and tissue donation are honored, and recipient families share their thanks and celebrate milestones. Donate Life America (DLA) would like to thank the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), the American Society of Transplantation (AST),  American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) and Transplant Families for their partnership in developing and promoting National Pediatric Transplant Week.
