Community Outreach

Since 1971, Gift of Life Michigan has honored life by connecting people who need vital organ and tissue transplants with donors. We launched Let’s Talk to reach out to multicultural, youth, and faith communities.

The Community Spoke

And We Listened

We launched Let’s Talk to reach out to multicultural communities, where people are more likely to need an organ transplant, yet less likely to sign up as organ donors, to address the shortage of organs for transplant, educate people about the need for organ donors, break down some of the common myths and misconceptions and encourage them to sign up on the organ donor registry.
