We’ll be sharing our favorite submissions throughout phase two of the campaign, July 14-27!

What is the national Donate Life ECHO Campaign?

Donate Life ECHO is a national two-week outreach campaign, held each year during the second and third full weeks in July and focuses on the importance of donation and transplantation in multicultural communities. ECHO stands for Every Community Has Opportunity – the opportunity to save and heal lives. Donate Life ECHO was created in 2015 as a collaborative partnership between the Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) and Donate Life America.” - Donate Life America

Real Life Impact Stories

Grady Angeloff

Grady Angeloff takes comfort in knowing that his son Riley’s brief life had an important purpose: to help other children live. Grady, a Blood Operations Specialist, made the decision to donate Riley’s heart valves when he passed away at just one year old. Because of Riley’s gift of life-saving tissue, the hearts of other children are still beating.

Richard Lewis

Richard has received the gift of life – not once, but twice. Richard was recently matched with his second kidney donor whose spirit lives on through the miracle of organ donation. "It's a blessing. I hope to continue to give my donor's life purpose," says Richard.
