Donate Life Month is Coming!

As many of you know, the month of April is National Donate Life Month and it is quickly approaching! If you would like to hold a donation presentation or donor designation drive at your school, workplace, hospital, etc., let us know – we’d be happy to come out and help, free of charge! Here are some ideas about how to do your part to educate the public about donation during National Donate Life Month:

Hold a Donor Designation Drive
This is an easy way to increase the number of donors on the Maryland state registry and have fun while doing so! All you need is a table set up somewhere in your school/office/hospital/restaurant, etc. We can provide staff (free of charge) to be available to help answer questions about donation and register people on the donor registry. We will also come with some fun giveaways because seriously – who doesn’t love free stuff?!

Host a Donation Presentation
Again, this is another way to educate the public about donation free of charge. Our staff is trained to speak about and answer questions regarding donation in many different settings, including high school and college classrooms, club meetings, hospitals, conferences, etc. Let us know if you’d like to set up a presentation with us.

Have a Cause Day/Week!
Pick a day where your school/hospital/office will show its support for donation and go all out! Wear the Donate Life colors (blue and green), put out information and registration forms for the Maryland Donor Registry in a break room, create a display/bulletin board about the donor registry – be creative! If you own a restaurant or bar, consider having a day in April where organ donors with hearts on their driver’s licenses can get food or drink specials. We are willing to provide information, staff support and some giveaways for anything you decide to do – just ask.

We love Donate Life Month and are constantly looking for great ways to celebrate. If you’re interested in joining us in our month-long celebration of second chances and the incredible gift of life, please contact Lauren Muskauski, lmuskauski@thellf.org, 443-833-1015 for more information.
