Think of your favorite chair or the chair of someone special in your life. When you see that chair, you can’t help but think of the person who sits in it.

This is the goal of the Donate Life Ohio Green Chair Campaign, to bring to mind the many different people affected by organ, eye and tissue donation. Recipients. Donor families. Those waiting for a transplant. And the families of those who died waiting.

The Green Chair is an invitation to all who have been touched by organ, eye and tissue donation to share their story. It is intended to be an icon of hope and encouragement, that as the number of registered donors increases, the fewer empty chairs there will be!
