April is recognized nationally as Donate Life Month. In 1997, Vice President Al Gore and HHS Secretary Donna Shalala launched the National Organ and Tissue Donation Initiative, which adopted “Share Your Life. Share Your Decision” as its slogan. Over the next several years, Congress, HHS, the Coalition on Donation, and the Ad Council employed various strategies to promote this shared message.
