Celebrate National Blue and Green Day | Moms
Join News10 and Sac & Co as we celebrate the generosity of organ and tissue donors!
April 20th is National Blue and Green Day - where everyone is urged to wear the National Donate Life colors in support of organ and tissue donation. News10 and Sac & Co talent will wear the DL colors and remind others of the importance of saving and improving lives. You are encouraged to do so too! Take pictures of your blue and green fashion, then post your pictures on the Facebook page Donate Life California in support.
2012 is a big year for the donation community as they work to sign up 20 million more registered donors in the US this year as a part of the "20 million in 2012" campaign.
More than 113,000 people in the US wait for a life-saving transplant - nearly 21,000 of those waiting, live in California. One in three will die waiting, due to a lack of donors.
Each donor has the potential to save eight lives through organ donation and improve another 50 lives through tissue donation.
You have the power to donate life. You can sign up on the Donate Life CA registry through the DMV when you get your license, or online at: www.donateLIFEcalifornia.org
