Donate Life and Our Hospital Partners
The American Hospital Association and Donate Life America want to thank our hospital partners and their staff for the vital clinical and educational role they play in donation and transplantation.
Currently, 115,000 patients are waiting for an organ transplant. Each year more than 30,000 of these patients begin new lives after receiving their transplant, and thousands more have their sight and mobility restored through cornea and tissue transplants.
Sadly, an average of 22 people die each day because the organ they need is not donated in time.
Here are 3 easy ways to support donation in your hospital:
3. Fly a Donate Life flag at your hospital. Donate Life flags have served as a nationwide display of unity, remembrance and hope, while honoring those touched by donation and transplantation since 2006. Flags are available at www.donationmerchandise.com/flags
About Donate Life America
Donate Life America is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization leading its national partners and Donate Life State Teams to increase the number of donated organs, eyes and tissue available to save and heal lives through transplantation while developing a culture where donation is embraced as a fundamental human responsibility.
DLA manages and promotes Donate Life℠, the national brand for the cause of donation; motivates the public to register as organ, eye and tissue donors; provides education about living donation; manages the National Donate Life Registry at RegisterMe.org; and develops and executes effective multi-media campaigns to promote donation.
Founded as the Coalition on Donation in 1992 by the donation and transplantation community, Donate Life America changed its name in 2006 in response to extensive research and the desire to align the organization with the Donate Life brand. Over the past 25 years, Donate Life America and the Donate Life Community have registered nearly 138 Million organ, eye and tissue donors in the United States – more than 56% of the adult population.
