National Organ Donor Day

Today is the day to give your heart to someone. No, not because it is Valentine’s Day, but because February 14 is also National Organ Donor Day!

At any given time, over 100,000 people are waiting for an organ that could save their lives, but each day, 18 people die waiting for an organ. National Organ Donor Day was set in place in 1998 to raise awareness surrounding organ donation.

Organ donation focuses on five major areas: organs, tissues, marrow, platelets, and blood. National Organ Donor Day draws attention to ways people can help others by becoming organ donors, singing up for blood donations, as well as giving marrow and tissue donations.

Calendar Donations for Austin Teachers

Each year, Calendars.com and Calendar Holdings give out thousands of calendars to local teachers and non-profits. This past Friday, teachers lined up outside our warehouse to jump at the chance to participate in the event.

Both of my parents are elementary school teachers and I know how they struggle with tight bugets. It gave me warm fuzzies to see us providing calendars to help the students organize their days.

Donation Day happens once a year,  usually in late March. If you are a local teacher or a local non-profit in Austin, TX, please contact vendorinfo@calendarholdings.com for more information.

Here is a snippet of what happened:
