Inspired by the love and strength of our donors, their families, and recipients, Cascade Life Alliance
participates in and sponsors several events throughout the year to celebrate these families and their loved ones.
Observed in April each year, National Donate Life Month helps raise awareness about donation, encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to honor those that have saved lives through the gift of donation. Check out our Donate Life Month page for all the upcoming events.
The Threads of Life Quilt touches thousands of people personally by sharing the stories of donors, recipients, and the professionals who are touched by donation.
If you are interested in making a quilt square, join the in-person workshops! Amazing quilters will join the workshop, and they will give you ideas and suggestions on how to create a quilt square. The workshop will also provide a good chance to connect with others in your community who have had their lives touched by donation and transplantation.
Or use these guidelines and make your square at home.
Congratulations to A Donation Conversation, a documentary for winning Best Picture at the Oregon Documentary Film Festival.
