A Friday through Sunday observance for faith leaders from various religions to help educate the public about the importance of organ donation two weekends before Thanksgiving.

To encourage more people to become registered organ, eye, and tissue donors by sharing the hope of organ donation.

3. Who can participate in National Donor Sabbath?

Anyone! We encourage transplant recipients, donor families, and those who have been touched by the gift of life to approach their faith community about sharing their story.

4. How can I participate in National Donor Sabbath?

  • Ask faith leaders to devote a few minutes of service to talking about organ donation using some talking points like these (you can also share this resource guide for faith leaders: Sharing the Gift of Life).

  • Invite members of your faith community who have been personally touched by the gift of life to share how an organ donor has touched their life.
