  • This year, the IPTA acknowledges National Donate Life Month in America, in the effort to bring global awareness to organ donation and transplantation. Throughout the month of April IPTA will recognize the impact of organ donation on the global scale. Now more than ever we need to bring awareness on the scarcity of organs and the importance of people becoming donors in their communities.
  • In the United States, April is celebrated as Donate Life Month and gives transplant organizations the chance to hold events and honor donor patients and families who have given the gift of life. Traditionally the colors of organ donation are light blue and light green. This year, we would like to begin the tradition on a global scale to celebrate “Blue & Green Day” by wearing these colors on Friday April 17th. Then, for the entire week of April 19 we will focus the importance on Pediatric Transplant Week and the unique set of circumstances our children around the world face while waiting for the precious resource of their life-saving organ.
  • Join us in sharing your story, and making a commitment to help eliminate waitlists all over the globe.
