2014 has been a great year, with a lot of great accomplishments. 2015 is right around the corner, and we're so excited for all that's to come - with Nike presenting our 2015 Scholarships, our newest Legacy Gift partnership with LifeGift, and exciting NEW events for 2015 (see the Save the Date), there is so much to look forward to.
But we need your help. It's because of YOUR support that Taylor’s Gift is making a global impact.
In the last year and a half we’ve been able to provide over $30,000 in financial aid for donor and recipient families with immediate needs like food, clothing, shelter, and burial expenses through our Legacy Gift program.

Organ donor registrations continue to increase! Along with our peers and other organ donation advocates, registrations across the nation have increased substantially. Since Taylor’s Gift began in 2010, registrations have increased by over 22 million nationwide and by over 6 million organ donors in Texas alone.

Through events, speaking engagements and grassroots fundraisers, more and more people are hearing Taylor's story and the mission of Taylor's Gift. We love seeing people inspired to take action - registering to be an organ donor and taking the Outlive Yourself Pledge.

- Through the support of some awesome celebrities like Alex O'Loughlin, Gloria Campos, Juju Chang, Ted McGinley, Audrey Anderson, Meredith Vieria, Lanie Hudson, Jarrett Payton, Natalie Morales and more, the message of Taylor's Gift continues to reach new audiences with celebrity-signed bottles of Taylor Blue.

We can't stop. We won't stop! There is still so much that needs to be done.
