KNWA Today: Donate and Register For Life In April

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - April is National Donate Life Month.

National Donate Life Month is about saving and healing lives through organ, eye, tissue and living donation. Every April, Donate Life America focuses national attention on how every individual has the potential to make LIFE possible by registering their decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor and by considering being a living donor.

The 2017 National Donate Life Month (NDLM) art uses pinwheels to tell the donation story. Pinwheels capture and pass on energy. Each Donate Life pinwheel has four sails supported by one stem. The one stem symbolizes the power of one person to save and heal lives through donation. The four sails represent organ, eye, tissue and living donation, the four ways one person can save and heal more than 75 lives through organ, eye and tissue donation, and even save a life through the gift of living donation.
 
Audrey Coleman & Counts Shanks from Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency stopped by KNWA Today to talk about their initiative and how residents can register to donate.
