National Donor Day 


Celebrated annually on Valentine's Day (February 14), National Donor Day is an observance dedicated to spreading awareness about organ and tissue donation, and recognizing those who have given the gift of life. By educating our communities, we can take small steps every day to help save and restore more lives, and continue to honor the legacy of our donors.

Ways to Celebrate

  • Start the Conversation - Encourage members of your community to discuss registering as an organ and tissue donor with their family and friends.

  • Host a Donor Registration Drive - Set up a table display in your community to distribute educational materials and answer questions about organ and tissue donation.
