Life Donation Awareness Associate of Midwest Ontario
MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of Life Donation Awareness Association is to raise public awareness of organ and tissue donation and encourage conversations, family discussions, and registration and consent for organ and tissue donation community-by-community.
The group is comprised of individuals from many different perspectives.
- transplant recipients
- donor family members
- living donor recipients
- individuals currently on the wait list
- family and friends of those connected to organ and tissue donation
- medical professionals
- community members interested in a common cause
Our efforts to raise awareness is executed in several ways. We host information booths within the community to answer questions and dispel misconceptions on a one-on-one conversation with the public. We present our stories at events and receptions to large and small groups to share our stories and inspire organ and tissue donation registration. Members of the group have connected with the schools in the area to encourage awareness within the young community. Manufacturing workplaces have welcomed our group to raise awareness across the vast numbers of employees in many different ways such as Wellness Fairs, magazine articles, posters, website links and more. Initiatives are taken in many directions that we see an opportunity to encourage conversation and increase the number of lives saved.
