Donate Life ECHO – July 8-21, 2018
ECHO Donate Life is an annual initiative focused on making the Donate Life message one of diversity and inclusion. It is about empowering multicultural communities to save and heal lives by registering as organ, eye and tissue donors. The goal is to equip people with tools and resources to have meaningful conversations about donation and transplantation. Use the power of your voice to help others and foster community by sharing your decision to register with family, friends, neighbors and coworkers. Encourage them to ECHO you and Donate Life.
Donate Life ECHO was created in 2015 as a collaborative partnership between the Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) and Donate Life America.
