You can make a difference

HonorBridge volunteers are transplant recipients, donor family members, transplant candidates, caregivers, and community members who are passionate about organ, eye, and tissue donation. Our Friends for Life Ambassadors are advocates, storytellers, speakers, and organizers. You can make a real impact on our community by helping us share your story and facts about donation and helping to register others to be organ, eye, and tissue donors. Similar to many non-profit organizations, some HonorBridge volunteer responsibilities require background checks.

Share Your Story

If you have been touched by donation, transplantation, or if you are waiting for a transplant or other life-enhancing procedure, your story can help others understand the power of organ, eye, and tissue donation. Your story can touch countless others. If you’d like to share your story, you can reach out to us here.

Help with Events

Ambassadors are also essential partners for us as we seek opportunities to share the message of donation in the community. If you’d like to represent HonorBridge at events, you’ll need to pass a background check and attend a training. Then, you’ll be ready to find opportunities in your own community where you can share the importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation.

To find out more about this opportunity, contact us.

Be a Speaker or Advocate

Lend your voice to our cause by using social media, writing an Op Ed article or Letter to the Editor or speaking to groups of any size or the media! The first step is to attend an Advocacy Symposium and then you’ll be ready to amplify the donation message and share the HonorBridge mission in virtual and in person settings across our service area.

To be notified about upcoming Advocacy Symposium events, please contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Friends for Life Ambassadors are advocates, storytellers, speakers, and organizers

Yes! We can provide 150 promotional items for any kind of event where you are representing HonorBridge as a Friends for Life Ambassador. We can provide rack cards, booklets, registration forms, tablecloths, and more. If you have completed the program training and would like to request supplies or materials for an upcoming event, please contact us.

HonorBridge requires Ambassadors who represent us at events or as speakers to complete a background check and training. If you’d like to share your story in writing, as part of a video, or in another format, a background check may not be necessary. Contact us to let us know how you’d like to volunteer, and we’ll share next steps.

We’d love to hear how your event went! We’ll send you a follow up survey so we can document how many people attended and how the event went. 

A Friends for Life Ambassador can share the mission of saving lives through donation in a variety of settings, including health fairs, community donor registration drives, faith-based celebrations, or other community events. Anywhere people are gathered there’s an opportunity to spread the word about how organ, eye, and tissue donation can heal and save lives.

Our Friends for Life Ambassadors can reach thousands of people just by posting pro-donation information on their social media sites. We can provide graphics, messaging, and other tips for our online influencers of all experience levels.
