Volunteering for Donate Life is the best part of my month! I try to volunteer at one event per month. I have met so many kind and wonderful people that work for Donor Alliance and volunteer for Donate Life. I have met many life long friends.
I've also gone through hours of training--including speech training. I find the training thoughtful and in-depth. Speech training gave me the words I needed to share my connection with donation.
I have volunteered at a variety of events for Donate Life. They are almost always uplifting and leave me feeling like I've really made a difference. Some of my favorites were at Comic Con, Cinco de Mayo in Denver, Donor Dash (I even got to share my story with the crowd!), Denver Auto Show, Denver Broncos Health Fair and so many more.
I highly recommend volunteering your time with Donate Life. They value me as a volunteer and value my time. It was the best decision I made!
