The Mid-South Transplant Foundation (MSTF) is bringing awareness of the need for organ and tissue donation through Blue & Green Day Mid-South, part of National Donate Life America’s month-long campaign. On Friday, April 16, Mid-South Transplant Foundation and community partners are turning Memphis and the Mid-South Blue and Green to highlight more than 4,000 Mid-Southerners waiting for a life-saving organ transplant.
Due to COVID-19, April is Donate Life Month and Blue & Green Day (April 16, 2021) will be celebrated virtually and there are many ways to safely participate. Visit www.MidSouthTransplant.org and click on Blue & Green Day for ideas.
Mid-South Transplant Foundation is committed to their mission and continues working every day to saving or improving the quality of lives for people in need of transplants, while also ensuring donors’ end-of-life wishes are fulfilled.
According to Kim Van Frank, Executive Director, Mid-South Transplant Foundation; “We’re proud to be able to continue our work saving and enhancing lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation. We encourage everyone in the counties we serve in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi to participate and help raise awareness. We hope more people will register as organ and tissue doors so more lives can be saved.”
Individuals and companies can light their building, fountain, home, wear blue & green, make a blue and green food item, decorate their car – the possibilities are endless. It’s easy and free – just register so your participation can be counted and recognized. Take pictures and upload them to the MSTF site to show you’re participating and for a chance to win prizes. T-shirts can be ordered and other resources are available such as yard signs, posters, tent cards, etc.
Blue & Green Day Mid-South will conclude with the ‘Mighty Lights’ lit in Blue and Green on the cables of the Big River Crossing and the Hernando de Soto Bridges in downtown Memphis.
Everyone is encouraged to register to become organ, eye and tissue donors so more lives can be saved. For more information visit www.MidSouthTransplant.org and look for Blue & Green Day
