April was Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Month.  Thank you for helping us spread the word by liking and sharing our social media posts and by talking to your family and friends about the importance of organ and tissue donation. Together, we can all make a difference.



Green Shirt Day - April 7th , 2021

April 7 is Green Shirt Day, a day not only dedicated to organ and tissue donation awareness, but also in memory of Logan Boulet, one of the hockey players who was tragically killed in the Humboldt bus crash a few of years ago. Not only was he able to donate his organs and save 6 lives, but that act alone started an incredible event where thousands of Canadians signed up to become organ and tissue donors. This is now known as the Logan Boulet Effect.  

Visit their website at https://greenshirtday.ca for more information. 

You can support this very important cause by simply wearing the colour GREEN on April 7th.

In honour of this very special day,  the City of Ottawa Heritage Building, the  Canadian Museum of History and the Canadian War Museum were all illuminated in GREEN. A big THANK YOU to all involved in making this happen.
