National Eye Donor Month 2014: Celebrating the Gift of Sight

For 31 years, EBAA has commemorated National Eye Donor Month to promote awareness of the need to donate eyes, to recognize donors and their families and to celebrate corneal recipients. Each March a member of Congress has read a proclamation into the Congressional Record to note this special occasion; this year, Rep. Aaron Schock (IL-18) will make the proclamation to declare March 2014 as National Eye Donor Month.

EBAA spearheaded the "Through My Eyes" Art Contest. Donor family members and cornea recipients have submit a written composition, drawing, photograph or video that portrays their journey of receiving sight or giving the gift of sight through a loved one. To view the selected entries from the contest, please click here.

Below are materials that may be used to promote National Eye Donor Month during educational activities, events, donor recognition ceremonies, etc...
