Living Green Ribbon Photos

Photos of Living Green Ribbons from all participating Ontario communities are now posted on the Living Green Ribbon web site.

Events were held on April 26th at the same time in Kitchener-Waterloo (shown above), Ottawa, Toronto, London, Kingston, Hamilton, Sarnia, Thunder Bay, Chatham Kent and Windsor.

As you will see, the turnout was excellent in all communities. Some ribbons were quite unique, I thought, like Sarnia's white border, Chatham's huge field and Hamilton's square bow. But all were filled with the warmth and love of our organ and tissue donation recipients, soon to be recipients, supports, family, friends and the general public interested in helping to give the "Gift of Life" to their fellow human beings in need.

This year has seen great strides in Organ and Tissue Donation awareness in Ontario and both the Kidney Foundation and Trillium Gift of Life Network deserve to be recognized for their initiatives and wonderful support that has already seen an almost twenty percent increase in donors this year over last year.
