Donate Life Month Recap

National Donate Life Month is has come to an end, and it sure has been a busy month for The Living Legacy Foundation. From our calculations, The LLF participated in 60 community events to raise awareness during the month of April.  For a month with only 30 days, that is a lot of events!  Here is a breakdown of the types of events we held and/or attended throughout the month:

  • 37 donation information booths at partner hospitals
  • 12 health fairs / presentations / special events
  • 4 donation information booths and presentations at Maryland colleges and universities
  • 4 presentations at faith based organizations
  • 3 donation information booths and presentations at Maryland high schools

And we couldn’t have been at all these different events without the support of our hard-working staff, passionate hospital partners and faithful, amazing volunteers. Thank you so much for your support all year long.

Be One. Save Many. Campaign

In addition to our many outreach events this April, The Living Legacy Foundation partnered with Donate Life Maryland in a statewide advertising campaign, “Donors are Heroes. Be One. Save Many.”  Our life-saving message was seen in many media outlets throughout Maryland, from Hagerstown to Salisbury, with a heavy focus on the Baltimore metro area. You may have even seen our message on the backs of busses!

April may be over; however, we are still busy promoting the Maryland Donor Registry and the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. Stay tuned for upcoming events aimed to help promote this life-saving cause.

About Lauren

Lauren Muskauski is the communications associate at The Living Legacy Foundation. She heads up many community outreach initiatives and projects, with a focus on middle school, high school and college outreach. She also manages The LLF’s and Donate Life Maryland’s presence on social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook. Lauren’s commitment to donation started early when she registered as an organ, eye and tissue donor at the MVA upon receiving her first drivers’ license, but was then reinforced a few years later when her father passed away while waiting for a liver transplant. Now, she continues to be inspired on a daily basis by the generosity of donors and their families, as well as the gratitude exhibited by every recipient she meets.
