Together Strong: Register. Tell Your Family. Be Inspired.

The Kidney Foundation is proud to be a community partner of Green Shirt Day April 7.

In April 2018, Canadians rallied together in support of the victims, survivors and families of the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash that took place in Saskatchewan. 

In 2019, the family of Logan Boulet held the first annual national Green Shirt Day in honour of their son Logan and the Bronco 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.

Weeks before Logan Boulet was fatally injured in the Broncos bus crash, he had registered his decision to be an organ donor and discussed his wishes with friends and family. The 21-year old defenseman went on to save six lives through his generous gifts. In the weeks that followed, Logan’s story inspired almost 150,000 Canadians to become registered organ donors. We hope you will join the Canadian organ and tissue donation community in championing this movement of hope and inspiration by wearing green on April 7.
