Flags Across America Marks National Donate Life Month

April is National Donate Life Month, and to recognize and celebrate organ, tissue and eye donation, UW Hospital and hospitals across the nation are participating in Flags Across America, and will fly Donate Life flags for the entire month. As part of their Workplace Partnership for Life initiative, WPS insurance will join the initiative and will fly Donate Life flags at all 18 of their locations

Flags across America is a Donate Life America program that is designed to show how many people have been touched by organ donation. The hope is that hospitals, recovery organizations, recipients and everyone involved in the donation process will fly a Donate Life flag at their place of business or home.

The goal of the initiative is not only to show how many people have been affected by organ donation, but also to promote donation. Flying a Donate Life flag can be an opportunity to encourage others to be a donor, educate staff or community members about organ donation and thank those who have supported organ donation.
