Green Shirt Day is April 7

Join our virtual “sea of green” as we mark Green Shirt Day.

Inspired by the generous act of Logan Boulet, one of the sixteen who lost their lives in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash of April 2018, Green Shirt Day is dedicated to raising organ donor awareness & registration.

In the days and weeks that followed of the tragic accident, over 100,000 people registered to become organ donors inspired by one young hockey player’s decision to donate his organs. The phenomenon, dubbed the “Logan Boulet Effect”, represents the largest number of Canadians ever to register as organ donors as the result of a single event or person.

There are currently 4,300 people on the waiting list for an organ transplant. ¾ of them need a kidney.

Here’s how you can get involved:
  • Wear GREEN on Green Shirt Day and post photos stories and videos to inspire others to consider being an organ donor with the #GreenShirtDay #LoganBouletEffect hashtags
  • Tell us how organ donation changed your life.
  • If you are registered, tell others what inspired you and ask them to make a positive choice about organ donation and to tell their loved ones about it
  • Light up Green – It can be your front door light, a string of Christmas lights, etc.
By registering positive intent and telling loved ones about their intent, people can make a future promise to help someone in need.

The Kidney Foundation is proud to be a community partner of Green Shirt Day. Join us as we honour Logan Boulet and his tremendous legacy.
