Give Someone Hope this National Donor Sabbath

Register as an Organ, Eye & Tissue Donor

2013-Donor-Sabbath_Localizeable-Slide-LeviSAN DIEGO, Calif., Nov. 14, 2013 – Join Donate Life California in celebrating National Donor Sabbath this November 15-17, a time for people of all faiths to honor those who have given the life-saving gift of organ, eye and tissue donation. Every year during this special time, donation and transplant organizations work closely with communities of faith to bring the life-saving message of donation to congregations across the country.

Faith plays a significant role in the decision to register as a donor.  All major religions support organ, eye and tissue donation, and believe it to be a final act of kindness and generosity. To read the views of specific theological groups, read our Religious Views on Organ Donation page.

Messaging that provides hope,” says Charlene Zettel, CEO of Donate Life California “By registering to be an organ, eye and tissue donor, you can provide hope to the more than 120,000 men, women and children across the United States currently awaiting organ transplants and the hundreds of thousands more in need of cornea and tissue transplants.”

Make a statement of hope and faith today and register to be an organ, eye and tissue donor. People of all faiths and denominations are encouraged to register as donors by visiting www.donateLIFEcalifornia.org.
