Pause to Give Life

Please join us on Monday, April 2 as we kick off National Donate Life Month by participating in a statewide Donate Life flag raising ceremony and moment of silence to honor donors and their families and promote the mission of organ, tissue and eye donation.

Simultaneously, with dozens of other Wisconsin hospitals and organizations, Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin (LEBW) will raise our Donate Life flag at 10:08 a.m. to highlight the fact that 1 donor can save 8 lives. We’ll then observe a moment of silence for 1 minute and 14 seconds to recognize the more than 114,000 patients waiting for a life-saving transplant.

In conjunction with Donate Life Wisconsin, LEBW will participate in Pause to Give Life, a statewide observance to take place annually on the first Monday morning of April. The Donate Life Flag, introduced in 2006, has become a national symbol of unity, remembrance and hope, while honoring those touched by donation and transplantation. During the past 12 years, 50,000 Donate Life Flags have flown across America.

Where: Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin – 2401 American Lane, Madison, Wisconsin
When: Monday, April 2, 2018
Time: 9:30AM (refreshments & networking) 10:00AM (flag raising ceremony begins)

We look forward to seeing you!
