What Is Blue & Green Day Mid-South?
The Mid-South Transplant Foundation, as part of the National Donate Life America’s month-long campaign, is bringing local awareness to the need for organ and tissue donation. We need YOUR help to turn the mid-south Blue and Green!
On Friday, April 17, 2020:
• The “Mighty Lights” will be lit in Blue and Green on the cables of the Big River Crossing and the Hernando de Soto Bridges.
• Community and corporate partners throughout the city will wear or showcase Blue and Green.
• Mid-South Transplant Foundation Ambassadors will staff booths throughout the Mid-South to register new organ and tissue donors.
Why celebrate Blue and Green Day Mid-South?
Right now, there are more than 4,000 people in the Mid-South waiting for a life-saving transplant – with more than 89% waiting for a kidney (due to high blood pressure and diabetes). By participating you can generate local attention to this critical issue, spur discussion among families, and save lives in the Mid-South by inspiring others to register as organ and tissue donors.
