National Donor Sabbath

National Donor Sabbath is observed annually on Friday through Sunday two weekends before Thanksgiving. This three-day observance seeks to include places of worship in promoting donation. Faith leaders from many religions, donor families, transplant recipients, and donation and transplantation professionals participate in services and programs to increase awareness of the need for the lifesaving and enhancing gifts passed to others through transplantation and encourage people to sign up in their state registry as organ, eye, tissue, donors.

We invite you to use the following downloadable resources within your local communities and houses of worship. Make sure to tag us on your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts.
