About the Campaign

The Hospital Organ Donation Campaign was launched in June 2011 as a special effort of the Workplace Partnership for Life. Through the campaign, organ, eye, and tissue donation organizations work with hospitals to create engaging donation registration drives, social media campaigns, and other events to raise awareness and register donors within the hospital's facilities and local community.

This national campaign was inspired by a very successful donor registration campaign conducted by the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) and the Louisiana Hospital Association (LHA) in 2008 and 2009.
