Donate Life Month: Why Pinwheels?

Everywhere you look this April, you see pinwheels. They are whimsical, colorful and fun – but they are also meaningful. 

Donate Life America chose the concept of the pinwheel for the 2017 National Donate Life Month artwork. A pinwheel evokes various images and meanings, but the strongest association revolves around opportunity and energy. It is symbolic of an instrument that turns obstacles into opportunities. The pinwheel’s ability to capture and pass on energy parallels one’s potential to make LIFE possible.

Evan Lacombe’s Legacy: Translating Donation into HOPE

The stories of hope featured in LifeGift’s annual report/calendar are translated into Spanish each year to reach our Hispanic community. Since nearly 60 percent of those waiting for a lifesaving transplant are Hispanic, communicating the need for organ and tissue donors in Spanish is crucial.

GlobalSpeak Translations, a well-known and reputable translation company, especially in the technical energy industry, helps us make this possible. 

High Schools Embrace Organ and Tissue Donation

LifeGift is seeing an upswing in the number of high schools across its service area wanting to learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation.

Within the first three months of 2017, numerous schools from across Houston, Lubbock, Fort Worth and Amarillo have invited us to speak and host registration drives to help educate young minds about the power of donation.
