Blossom Pin Awards

Each month the team at Cascade Life Alliance gathers to acknowledge and to honor the donors and their families from the month prior.  Each leaf on the Donor Memorial Tree in the CLA offices, represents an organ donor that was honored by the team.

The cherry blossom is another symbol of the life-saving gifts from donors and their families. Like cherry blossom flowers on a tree, which bloom for only a handful of days each spring, we are reminded that life is both precious and fragile. The Blossom Pin Award, in turn, is granted to hospital personnel who go above and beyond in their support of saving lives through organ donation. It is with deep appreciation and gratitude that we recognize these efforts which help to turn tragedy into new life.
