Operation Popcorn occurs every year in December and is a way for us to thank those that make organ donation possible.
Each year in December, BC Transplant volunteers who are transplant recipients, living donor, and donor families visit hospitals around the province to thank the health care professionals that make organ donation a reality.
Delivering festive tins of popcorn, Operation Popcorn is an opportunity for people most grateful for the gift of life to say thank you. Health care professionals often only get to see the tragic side of organ donation as they support families of donors, dealing with the loss of a loved one. Operation Popcorn allows them to see the people whose lives have been saved thanks to their hard work and dedication. It’s our favourite time of year!
