Many Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts have earned the national Donor Awareness Patch since it was declared a Presidential Good Turn in 1986. Usually, a Donor Awareness Patch is awarded to a Scout the first time he is successful in getting an adult family member, friend, relative, or other acquaintance to agree to become an organ donor. Gift of Life is happy to provide handouts for your group and to support Eagle Scout donor drive projects. Volunteers and staff may be available to share personal stories and information about organ, tissue and eye donation. Contact us for details. Please confirm availability of the Patch with your local Scout Shop.
There is no formal nationwide organ donor awareness program for Girl Scouts, but many Michigan troops host presentations and provide opportunities for Girl Scouts to take the message into their communities. A limited number of Donate Life Girl Scout patches are available for troops that participate in educational programs and those that inspire others to #DonateLife. Donor Registry drives are a great project for Silver and Gold Awards! Gift of Life volunteers and staff may be available to share personal stories and information about organ, tissue and eye donation. Contact us for details.
