One of the most common misconceptions regarding donation is the belief that one's religion does not support organ and tissue donation. On the contrary, all major religions support donation, considering it one of the greatest acts of charity and generosity.
TransLife encourages strong relationships and partnerships with faith community organizations, as its leaders play a critical role in helping us educate others about the importance of organ and tissue donation and donor designation.
Together, we can sensitively prepare families for important decisions that impact their well-being and the physical health of the community.
Educate yourself. Learn the facts about organ and tissue donation. Share what you learn with members of your place of worship.Faith Community Leaders Make A Difference
National Donor Sabbath
Celebrated two weekends before Thanksgiving, National Donor Sabbath is a time for faith communities to reflect on the spirit of giving and the need for organ and tissue donation and donor designation.
This annual celebration presents an opportunity for all faiths to share the greatest blessing of all —The Gift of Life.
Most major religions in the United States consider organ and tissue donation as one of the greatest expressions of compassion and generosity. However, many followers are unaware of this fact. It is extremely important for faith leaders to inform their congregations that they can designate their wishes as organ and tissue donors.Participation Is Simple
