Green Shirt Day
April 7th is Green Shirt Day in honour of Humboldt Broncos defenceman and organ donor Logan Boulet.
Before Logan Boulet was fatally injured in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash, he had registered his decision to be an organ donor and discussed his wishes with his family.
The 21-year old defenceman went on to save six lives with his generous gifts. In the weeks that followed, Logan’s story inspired more than 100,000 Canadians to become registered organ donors. This became known as the “Logan Boulet Effect”.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority encourages you to wear green on Sunday, April 7 or on Monday, April 8 (at school and in the work place) to promote organ and tissue donation awareness and honour the Humboldt Broncos victims, survivors and their families.
