Be a symbol of hope for those who are waiting

Donate Life

National Donor Sabbath is a time when the donation and transplantation community and members of faith communities come together to focus on the lifesaving and healing gifts passed on through organ, eye and tissue donation. This three-day celebration highlights the important role faith plays in many people’s lives and how it influences someone’s decision to help others by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor.
Nearly 124,000 men, women and children are in desperate ne...ed of lifesaving transplants, and thousands more can be healed through tissue and cornea transplants. The key to solving this public health crisis is having more people to register as donors. More than 400 people are waiting right here in Nebraska for the Gift of Life.

 We invite you to celebrate National Donor Sabbath with us (November 13-15) by sharing the message of donation with your congregation and encouraging them to register. Research has shown that one of the main reasons people refuse to register is the belief that it is against their religion. All of the world’s major religions consider organ donation to be a final act of love and generosity. With your help, we can eliminate this all too common misconception and offer this lifesaving and healing opportunity as a true act of compassion.
