Sunday, November 12, 2017

National Donor Sabbath is two weekends before Thanksgiving each year. Does your faith community participate?  This year, donation and transplant professionals join faith communities November 11 - 13, to focus on the life-saving and life-affirming gifts that can be passed to others through organ, eye, tissue, and blood stem cell donation. Faith leaders participate in services and programs to increase awareness of donation and transplantation and the critical need for donors. Donation is viewed by all major organized religions in the United States as an act of compassion and generosity. Temples, churches, mosques, and other places of worship can observe the National Donor Sabbath in their own unique ways.  Click here to find out more and to access materials that your faith community might use.
