National Donate Life Blue & Green Day LifePoint employees celebrated National Donate Life Blue & Green Day on April 19 by sporting the colors that symbolize the gift of life provided by organ, eye and tissue donors. Many stepped up to the cause by painting their feet to create a special awareness banner.
The image of that (above) beat out 42 other photos to win first place and $100 in the Arts & Crafts category of Donate Life America's national competition. A total of 400 photos from throughout the U.S. were submitted in the seven competition categories.
"The Power of Two" Is Coming to TV May 22!
Everyone in the transplant community knows that it takes power to give the gift of life through organ donation, survive the wait and thrive after receiving a transplant. Twin sisters and double lung transplant recipients Ana Stenzel and Isa Stenzel Byrnes, and other members of the transplant community worldwide, show what power can do in the documentary film “The Power of Two.” Called “compelling” and “poetic” by the Wall Street Journal, and an “inspiring triumph” by Golden Globe® nominated actor Jack Black, this winner of ten film festival awards has entertained, educated and inspired audiences globally.
Starting May 22, “The Power of Two” is coming to TV across the U.S. The film will screen on the satellite Link TV network nationally, KCET public television in Southern and Central California, and online as part of a two-hour special presentation from KCETLink featuring the full length feature film and brand new footage. For broadcast dates/times, exclusive clips, blog posts, resources on organ donation, and to watch the film online, go to www.ThePowerOfTwo.tv.
