National Donate Life Month

National Donate Life Month

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) was established by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations in 2003.  Celebrated in April each year, NDLM features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

Garden of Life

The 2021 NDLM artwork, “Garden of Life”, was inspired by the springtime scene of a garden.  A garden and the insects within it serve as symbols of hope, courage and transformed life – themes repeatedly found within the donation and transplantation journey.

The Donate Life garden depicts an ecosystem of plants, insects, and other components working together to form an interconnected living system.  Similarly, we each have the potential to nurture and enrich our communities through organ, eye and tissue donation.
