Blogging daily in April in recognition of National Donate Life Month. Please register as an organ donor and help to raise awareness about this lifesaving gift.

  • African Methodist Episcopal (AME & AME Zion)
  • Amish
  • Assembly of God

*“According to the Watch Tower Society, Jehovah’s Witnesses believe donation is a matter of individual decision. Jehovah’s Witnesses are often assumed to be opposed to donation because of their belief against blood transfusion. However, this merely means that all blood must be removed from the organs and tissues before being transplanted.” - From The Gift of a Lifetime

Happy Easter and happy Donate Life Month.
