Connections


Donor families and transplant recipients often want to connect with each other. Recipients, to thank the families of donors who gave them life. Donor families, to send well wishes to those who live through their loved one’s donation. We can help to make that connection by coordinating communication between donor families and recipients.

How to Connect: Guidelines for Corresponding with Others

Because many donor families and transplant recipients want to connect with each other, we have produced a set of guidelines to help you. Use the resources below to help you write a note of thanks to the family of your donor or to extend your well-wishes to the person who received your loved one’s gift of life.

Honor Your Loved One in Unique Ways

 

Angel Images offers wonderfully fitting ways for donor families to honor their loved ones through its wide selection of magnets and bumper stickers with donation-related messages. Angel Images was created by Greg Klocke to honor the memory of his son, Brian, a tissue and cornea donor.
