About the Donate Life Brand: The National Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Symbol
The Brand for the Cause
The Donate Life logo serves as the national symbol for the cause of organ, eye and tissue donation and links the call to action to become a donor with a powerful visual image. The Donate LifeSM brand statement and logo unites the hundreds of donation and transplantation organizations and the hundreds of thousands of patients, families and supporters we serve.
The consistent use of the registered Donate Life℠ and Done Vida℠ words and logos helps strengthen our collective branding efforts, reinforce the life-based positioning of donation and transplantation, and promote trust. Our brand inspires what we do, informs what we say and shapes how we say it.
The National Organ Donation Symbol
The Donate LifeSM brand statement and logo were developed to place the cause of organ, eye and tissue donation in the context of life and living, a selfless gift, showing compassion for humanity. Blue, green and the swirl represent the sky, earth and circle of life. The Donate Life logo is a call to action, telling the public to Donate Life — to register their decision to save lives.
The Donate Life brand serves as a rallying point for patients waiting, recipients, living donors, donor families, registered donors, the public, and the professional donation and transplantation community. It represents the collective experiences, thoughts and feelings connected with donation and transplantation.
