Community Education

Educating our communities about the importance of organ and tissue donation and donor designation is critical to saving lives. By learning the facts on donation, individuals are empowered to not only make a decision regarding donation but to actually take time to designate their wishes.

National research conducted by Donate Life America, which assists in mobilizing the organ and tissue donation and transplant community in an effort to increase the public's knowledge of donation and donor designation, concluded that a majority of Americans support donation but more than half were unaware of their state's process for donor designation.

In Florida, individuals can designate their wishes by joining the state's organ and tissue donor registry. Donor cards are also available to carry in your wallet.

By establishing relationships with driver license offices, schools, places of worship, service organizations, companies and the media, TransLife is able to increase overall outreach, sharing the Donate Life message.

Our educational initiatives include the Workplace Partnership for Life, Faith Community Outreach, Driver License Office Education, Get Carded, Decision: Donation High School program, Race for Life, Done Vida and more.

Speakers, brochures and promotional materials are utilized to support presentations and campaigns of all sizes. We coordinate community events and activities with the assistance of many spirited and caring volunteers.

TransLife, a Donate Life organization, supports Donate Life America by sharing its national message of the power of donation with our communities.
