Join heart recipients as they give thanks to organ donors in honor of National Donor Day 2016. February 14th, National Donor Day is a time to focus on all types of donation—organ, eye, tissue, blood, platelets and marrow—by participating in blood/marrow drives or donor registration events. It is also a day to recognize our loved ones who have given the gift of donation, have received a donation, are currently waiting or did not receive an organ in time.

This event is geared especially toward pediatric heart recipients and will include media coverage/availability.

Donate Life Pennsylvania is a collaborative initiative between the Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE), Gift of Life Donor Program (GOL), and the Pennsylvania Departments of Health and Transportation. It is funded by residents of Pennsylvania through voluntary contributions included with driver’s license renewals, vehicle registrations and state income tax filings. All contributions are used by the Governor Robert P. Casey Memorial Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Trust Fund to educate Pennsylvanians, build awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation, and increase the number of people who sign up to become donors on their driver's license, learner’s permit or state identification card.
