More than 70 organizations supporting Donate Life America’s life-saving mission participate in the Donate Life Rose Parade float. The 2015 theme, the Never-Ending Story, features butterflies emerging from storybooks to symbolize the enduring power of organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation. The Donate Life fload and its honored participants are the centerpiece of a national campaign that leads up to the 2015 Rose Parade, themed “Inspiring Stories.”
JJ’s Legacy honors the legacy of Jeffrey Johns by educating Kern County residents and inspiring them to become registered organ and tissue donors, and by providing compassionate support to donor and recipient families.
