Legacy of Humankindness

Legacy of Humankindness

The act of organ, eye, or tissue donation and transplantation is the embodiment of humankindness.

Through the Legacy of Humankindness Award, Dignity Health and JJ’s Legacy have the opportunity to honor the gift of life in our local community.  Each year, the sponsored donor is represented on the annual Donate Life Rose Parade Float with a floragraph that the donor’s family is invited to participate in creating. It is a great honor to be a part of this annual display that reminds us of the great gifts that have been given out of tragedy and raises awareness of the importance of registering to become an organ, eye and tissue donor.
