Feedback form is now closed.
Logan Boulet inspired over 100,000 Canadians to register to become organ donors after the Humbolt Tragedy in April 2018. In 2019, the family of Logan Boulet held the first annual national Green Shirt Day in honour of their son Logan and the Broncos family. They aimed to increase awareness about the importance of organ donation and honour Logan’s precious gift. This highly impactful annual campaign is known as Green Shirt Day and takes place on April 7. Knowledge is key to addressing young people’s concerns about organ and tissue donation. It can help them feel empowered to talk about donation with their families and equip them to make informed choices in the future. In this session an excellent array of classroom resources is shared to teach about organ donation and plan Green Shirt Day activities in your school and community. Presenters include the perspectives of Logan’s family, a transplant recipient, medical team members who treat pediatric transplant patients and the creator of the educational materials.
