National Donor Sabbath will be celebrated November 14-16, 2014.  During National Donor Sabbath, faith leaders from many religions, donor families, transplant recipients, and donation and transplantation professionals participate in services and programs to increase awareness of the need for the lifesaving and enhancing gifts passed to others through transplantation and encourage people to sign up in their state registry as organ, eye, tissue, donors.   For more information about National Donor Sabbath or for information including sample sermons, visit the New York Alliance for Donation's Donor Sabbath page.

Kidney Connection can Help Those Waiting for Kidney Transplant

  • Are you a dialysis patient or currently on the transplant waiting list?
  • Are you someone that would save a life if you could?
  • Then you’re on your way to making the kidney connection!

Kidney Connection is a FREE service that allows those in need of a kidney to share their story in the hope that someone willing to be a donor will step forward and be tested.  All we do is make the “connection” – the introduction, and from there you will work with the transplant center to determine whether the connection is a match!  Take a look at some of those who are waiting - click here!
