Donate Life NC has crafted some wonderful messages to be shared across the state throughout the month of April to help in our joint goal of inspiring more North Carolinians to register. National Donate Life Month is in April and there are many resources at the Donate Life America website, including logos, posters, Facebook avatars and more.
These messages can be shared by an individual or both internally and externally by an organization. Internal suggestions include: electronic message boards in hospitals and clinics, employee intranets and email messages. Externally, share these via social media — and be sure you are following HonorBridge on Facebook and Donate Life NC on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest.

April 3: 100 Days till the Transplant Games of America

April 10: National Siblings Day
This would be an excellent opportunity to feature a donation story, especially living donation, between brothers and sisters!
April 11: Donate Life Blue and Green Day
Everyone is encouraged to participate in Donate Life Blue and Green Day by wearing blue and green (easy to do with scrubs!) and thinking of other creative ways to support organ, eye and tissue donation. Donate Life America is once again sponsoring a contest for the best pictures posted to their Facebook page. Encourage your staff to participate – we’d love to see North Carolina well represented! If you need some inspiration, you can find terrific blue and green images on the Donate Life NC Pinterest site. Think nail polish, hair color, clothes – even cupcake decorations. Be creative and have fun with it.
April 6-12: National Volunteer Week
During National Volunteer Week we like to show appreciation to all of our volunteers. This is a great time to ask your staff if they are interested in volunteering to support organ, eye and tissue donation.
