Donate Life Month 2017


Every April for National Donate Life Month, The Living Legacy Foundation joins with Donate Life Maryland, hospitals, MVAs, donor families, recipients, and donation advocates to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation and celebrate generous donors. A national observance, Donate Life Month (DLM) features an entire month of local, regional, and national activities and initiatives such as Donate Life flag raisings, information tables, donor memorial ceremonies, social media campaigns, and Be Seen in Green Day.

Please help us raise awareness for organ and tissue donation in April! Check back to this page as we gear up and update our materials for Donate Life Month 2017!



For Donate Life Month 2017, The LLF is continuing our awareness campaign, #In1Word, inviting participants to share their support for organ and tissue donation in one word and stress the ease with which everyone can save lives in one word: Yes.

For more information and printable #In1Word signs, please visit the campaign page here:


Be Seen In Green Day

On Friday, April 21st, show your support for organ and tissue donation. Be Seen In Green!

Nearly 3,800 Marylanders are currently waiting for a life-saving transplant. Help end their wait by wearing green on April 21st to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation and in honor of the thousands of generous Marylanders and their families who have saved and enhanced lives through their decision to donate. Share your support (and your green!) on social media using #BeSeenInGreen.


Donate Life Flag Raisings

As part of the national initiative, "Flags Across America," The LLF partners with our Maryland hospitals to fly the Donate Life Flag throughout the month of April to raise awareness for donation and honor our generous donors and their families.
