April is
National Donate Life Month 

Toda comunidad necesita héroes 

Un mes para honrar, recordar y dar esperanza

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) features an entire month of activities to help encourage people to register as organ and tissue donors and to honor those who have saved lives through the gift of donation.

Hospitals, big and small, are invited to join the Hospital Campaign and earn HRSA/DoNation points. Become a part of the initiative that has encouraged over 630,000 Americans to register as organ donors since 2011, and help create a donation-friendly culture in your hospital using our free tools and resources.

He aquí algunas razones por las que registrarse ahora es más importante que nunca:

  • De los más de 100.000 residentes en EE.UU. que esperan un trasplante que les salve la vida, más de 4.000 viven aquí mismo, en Nueva Jersey.
  • Cada día mueren 17 personas a la espera de un trasplante.
  • Cada 9 minutos se añade otra persona a la lista de espera.
  • Un donante de órganos y tejidos puede salvar 8 vidas y mejorar las de más de 75 personas.

Únase a nosotros en Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn y TikTok durante todo el mes para participar y ayudarnos a compartir nuestro mensaje de salvar vidas. 

Toda comunidad necesita héroes

During National Donate Life Month we are encouraging people to register as organ and tissue donors by distributing custom coffee sleeves, table tents and posters to our hospital partners and restaurants, coffee shops and cafes throughout NJ. All materials are free of charge. Please speak with your NJ Sharing Network Hospital Services Manager to participate!

All materials will be delivered by April 1, 2023.
