The Donate Life Blue and Green Day, which takes place on April 28, was primarily created by the Donate Life America organisation to encourage people to accept the concept of organ donation for those in need. April, which is National Donate Life Month, is typically observed on any day (typically a Friday) during the month. There is no specific day designated for this occasion. Donate Life Blue and Green Day is typically observed by the hundreds of thousands of individuals awaiting organ donations, who don blue and green clothing to raise awareness.
The background of Donate Life Blue and Green Day
Donate Life America (D.L.A.) is a non-profit organisation committed to preserving lives through organ transplants and promoting organ donation as a fundamental human duty. The D.L.A. manages and coordinates Donate Life, its national brand for generating donations and encouraging the public to register as donors. In addition to educating the public about living donations, they devise and execute donation campaigns. In 1992, the D.L.A. was established as the “Coalition on Donation.” This name was used for fourteen years until 2006, when it was changed to ‘Donate Life America.’ Donate Life America has effectively registered hundreds of millions of donors in the United States over the course of roughly three decades.
In 2003, Donate Life America was instrumental in establishing National Donate Life Month, which then-President George W. Bush declared official for the first time. Since then, they have launched campaigns aimed at millennials via digital outreach and social media. The organisation has chosen April for its annual awareness campaigns, which concentrate on the capacity of every individual to improve the quality of life of others by merely registering their intention to donate. The organisation creates artwork that embodies the significance of giving. One of the two main highlights of National Donate Life Month is National Donate Life Blue and Green Day, which is typically held on a random day in April, depending on the Donate Life Month activities planned.
On Donate Life Blue and Green Day, the public is encouraged to wear blue and green, host fundraising events, and work with businesses, the media, and the community to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation and transplantation.
