Donor Sabbath in photos


National Donor Sabbath, observed annually two weekends before Thanksgiving, brings together the donation, transplantation and faith communities to give thanks for the lifesaving gifts of organ, eye and tissue donors. At Augusta University, the occasion was marked with prayer and a flag raising. In partnership with LifeLink of Georgia, a new Donate Life flag was raised outside AU Medical Center during a program including information on registering for organ donation and the important role faith plays in many people’s lives and how it influences someone’s decision to help others by registering as a donor.
