LifeGift

Goal: $20,000

We are pleased to invite your friends, colleges and family to join these efforts to honor heroes and provide more second chances. Your organization’s financial gifts will support the race logistics, and any additional funds will help finance donor family/recipient meetings and donor memorials. Both of these events pay tribute to the legacy of organ, eye and tissue donors in meaningful ways.

Thank you for considering how you might generously partner with LifeGift in the efforts to increase the number of lives saved through organ and tissue donation.

1. Donor Remembrance Ceremony

An annual tradition, the “Celebration of Life” Donor Remembrance Ceremony pays tribute to those who gave the gift of life. Each family receives a donor medal, symbolizing their loved one’s precious gifts.

 

2. Donate Life Rose Parade Float

Donor families sometimes participate in the Donate Life Rose Parade Float on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, California. Their loved one’s photo is recreated into a floragraph, a portrait made of all natural materials that adorns the float as a special remembrance. Pictured is the Kline family of Houston, putting the finishing touches on a floragraph in honor of their daughter Anna. The floragraph appeared on the 2018 Donate Life Rose Parade Float, “The Gift of Time.”

 

3. Donate Life Transplant Games

Attending the Donate Life Transplant Games is a unique way to honor a loved one who gave the gift of life. A multisport festival, the event is for individuals who received organ, eye, tissue and bone marrow transplants and celebrates the lives of organ and tissue donors. In 2018, the Games will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah.

 

4. Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run

Many families will assemble teams in memory of their loved ones who gave the gift of life during the Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run hosted by LifeGift. For four consecutive years, the family of Xander Vento, organ and tissue donor, has been crowned the largest team at the Fort Worth Run.

5. Donor Family/Recipient Gathering

LifeGift orchestrates donor family/recipient gatherings should both parties agree to meet. Eva Garcia, mother to donor Estaban Garcia, receives a warm embrace after meeting her son’s kidney/pancreas recipient.
