Spring is upon us! As we see flowers popping up and green grass breaking through the dull days of winter, our spirits are renewed. Once again we can celebrate the new life that comes with the season.

That makes April a perfect time for Donate Life Month; a nationwide effort to celebrate life and give hope to the thousands of Americans are waiting on a lifesaving transplant.

This month, we are working hard to share the Donate Life message!  Here are some of the ways we’re celebrating:

  • April 7    Columbus Crew Game – Look for the Donate Life booth at Crew Stadium before the game
  • April 15   Pinwheel Planting – Join us at Wexner Medical Center to plant pinwheels for transplant recipients (contact volunteers@lifelineofohio.org)
  • April 19  “Take a Seat for Donation” – We’re teaming up with NBC4 for a day-long webcast from the Donate Life Green Chair
  • April 21   Columbus Crew Game – Look for the Donate Life booth at Crew Stadium before the game
  • April 26  Candlelight Vigil of Hope, Remembrance and Celebration – Join us as we honor donors and celebrate life
  • April 28   Columbus Crew Game – Look for the Donate Life booth at Crew Stadium before the game

Our very own Honey Bee is celebrating her third birthday this month!  Look for her out and about in the community and like her Facebook page to find out where she’ll “bee.”

You can help us celebrate Donate Life Month by spreading the message in your community!  Use the picture in this blog post on your Facebook page, tweet that you’ve registered as a donor or just talk to friends and family about making the decision to donate.  With your help, we will continue to save lives through the incredible gift of life.
