NATIONAL MINORITY DONOR AWARENESS DAY

As part of National Minority Donor Awareness Week, National Minority Donor Awareness Day is celebrated on August 1, 2014.

In its 18th year, National Minority Donor Awareness Week was created to increase awareness of the need, especially among minorities, for more organ, eye and tissue donors.  It is also a time to honor minorities who have donated and to encourage others to register as donors.  People are also encouraged to practice good health habits in order to take better care of themselves in an attempt to reduce the number needing transplants.

Post on social media using #MinorityDonorAwarenessDay to encourage others to join in paying it forward.

HISTORY

The origins of National Minority Donor Awareness Day, an “unofficial” National Day,  is linked to the week observation for the same cause.
