What is Donate Life ECHO?
ECHO stands for Every Community Has Opportunity – the opportunity to save and heal lives. Donate Life ECHO began in 2015 as a collaborative partnership between the Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) and Donate Life America (DLA). It is a nationwide observance focused on the importance of donation and transplantation in multicultural communities.
The ECHO concept is that one voice with a donation message or story can be carried, amplified and echoed throughout a community. There is power and strength in one voice sharing a story or message and their decision to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor. The observance started on July 9 and ran through July 22.
Why is it important? In Texas, 70 percent of the people waiting for a transplant belong to multicultural communities. LifeGift encourages you to ECHO the message of HOPE.
