Canadian Organ & Tissue Donation Community unites to promote Green Shirt Day
Canadian Blood Services is proud to contribute to Green Shirt Day and support the Boulet family’s awareness activities in partnership with the Canadian Transplant Association and in collaboration with Canada’s Organ and Tissue Donation Community. We also extend our gratitude to official media partner Global News, which plays an important role in amplifying Logan’s story.
We are asking all Canadians to show their support for organ and tissue donation on Green Shirt Day, Sunday, April 7, and during National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week (NOTDAW) from April 21 – 27. We encourage all Canadians to register their decision to become organ and tissue donors, to share their decision with their family and to spread the word about the powerful impact of organ donation.
Canadian Blood Services operates with a national scope, infrastructure and governance that make it unique within Canadian healthcare. In the domain of organs and tissues it operates the national waitlist and interprovincial organ-sharing registries and we work together with Canada’s Organ and Tissue Donation Community to develop leading practice, to support public education and awareness campaigns and to improve the system, serving as a biological lifeline for Canadians.
