Every year in April, BC Transplant focuses its efforts on raising awareness for organ donation around the province.
Each year, we dedicate the month of April to sharing stories and raising awareness about the benefits of organ donation and the life-saving effects of transplantation. Awareness events, advertising, registration drives, news stories - it's a busy month and we invite you to have conversations about organ donation.
In 2016, BC Transplant worked with Global TV and provincial organ donor registries across the country to have a 48 hour registration blitz, to kick off national awareness week.
The blitz started Monday morning, April 18 and wrapped up 48 hours later on Wednesday morning - April 20. This campaign was a huge success--starting a total of 75,315 conversations across the country about organ donation! Thank you to everyone for your support.
Stay tuned for information on our plans for the 2017 campaign.
Request a mini-campaign kit and raise awareness in your community or school. You can also take a look at our Workplace Campaign Toolkit to find out how you can hold a registration drive in your workplace.
Send a message or an email to your circle of family and friends -- here is a sample you can use.
Over coffee, at dinner, on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). Let's make organ donation a normal part of conversation!
