Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Green Shirt Day (April 7) honours the legacy of Logan Boulet who became an organ donor following the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash in 2018. The details of this event inspired more than 100,000 people in Canada to register their decision to become organ donors in the few short weeks that followed. Logan’s family continues to raise awareness and support education initiatives to help even young people learn the facts about the powerful impact of organ donation. Knowledge is key to addressing young people’s concerns about organ donation. It can help them feel empowered to talk about it with their families and equip them to make informed choices in the future. In this session, discover an array of classroom resources with many cross-curricular links (K-12) to help you teach, learn and talk about this vital topic. Plan Green Shirt Day activities in your school and community or incorporate resources into your lesson plan any time of year. This presentation includes the perspectives of a donor family (Logan’s), a transplant recipient, a medical expert, and an advocate for public education and awareness. It also includes an introduction to a global program for K-5 called the Orgamites.
