Celebrate National Eye Donor Month
Approximately 48,000 corneas will be transplanted in the U.S. this year. With their vision renewed, the cornea recipients will be able to see their families and lead healthy, independent lives. March is National Eye Donor Month, a helpful reminder that it is important to sign up for the eye, organ, and tissue donor registry and to speak with your family about donation.
Donate Life and the Eye Bank Association of America offer several graphics for public display. Please consider downloading one of the images (or several!) and adding it to your social media profile(s) in March to help promote National Eye Donor Month in your community. With these images, you can encourage people to sign up for the donor registry at registerme.org or at their local motor vehicles office.
If you would like to host an eye, organ, and tissue donor designation drive in your community, we can send additional materials and instructions. Contact us or call 800-753-2265 to request materials or find out more.
