Good Day A4 Lions Clubs within Ontario,
Welcome to the 2016-17 Lions year under DG Lion Sue Wilkes. I have been appointed the A4 Chair for the Be A Donor Committee. I will be working closely with Trillium Gift of Life (TGLN), our MDA Chair, and the 8 other District Chairs. This committee will now consist of 2 parts-Be A Donor and Transplant Assistance.
You may have noticed this is directed to Clubs within Ontario. Tissue and Organ donation is run provincially so I have the pleasure of setting up different information for the Clubs in Ontario (through Trillium Gift of Life) and in Quebec (through Transplant Quebec). Should you want the information for Quebec as well, please let me know.
The Be A Donor portion deals with getting Lions, as well as the general public, to register with Service Ontario through Trillium Gift of Life to become registered tissue and organ donors. Our District has been given many resources from TGLN which include a popup tent, banners, brochures, pins, a designated website link and more. The goal is to have Lions members and local members of the public register to Be A Donor at www.beadonor.ca/a-4lionsclubs Should your Club be hosting a public event, I am available to either attend with the tent etc, or lend it and promotional items to your Club to help inform your community. Depending on cell service, I can also have people register onsite as long as they have their valid health card. Should you wish to have me attend your Club, Zone or Region meeting, please contact me at the info below and I will try my best to accommodate. So far I have set up displays at Vernon Village Garage Sale Day, Firefighter Games at the EOFA Convention in Winchester, RCMP Sunset Ceremonies, Sutherland Ball Tournament in Pembroke, and the Merrickville Car Show.
No financial support is required for the registration and information portion.
