April is

National Donate Life Month 


Hospital Resources

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 that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

Hospitals, big and small, are invited to join the Hospital Campaign!  Become a part of the initiative that has encouraged over 552,000 Americans to register as organ donors since 2011, and help create a donation-friendly culture in your hospital using our free tools and resources.

A Month to Honor, to Remember, to Give Hope

Here are some reasons why registering right now is more important than ever:

  • Of the over 100,000 U.S residents waiting for a life-saving transplant, over 4,000 live right here in New Jersey.
  • 17 people die each day while waiting for a transplant.
  • Another person is added to the waiting list every 9 minutes.
  • One organ and tissue donor can save 8 lives and enhance the lives of over 75 others.

Please join us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and TikTok throughout the month to get involved and help us share our life-saving message!
