The Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) is an independent, not-for-profit organ and tissue recovery agency. LOPA's Core Purpose is Making Life Happen. We save and heal lives through organ and tissue donation.
We love a party, especially one that celebrates the gift of life! The Willis-Knighton John C. McDonald Regional Transplant Center patient Christmas party was an absolutely great time. Lots of thankful organ recipients this time of year! 💙💚
We know you’ve been waiting! Episode 97 of @giftedlifepod is now available, PLUS, we are excited to announce that we are now listed on Spotify! Find the link to Spotify, other podcast apps and also listen anytime on our website: thegiftedlife.org
Show Notes: On episode 97 we welcome Litsa Williams and Eleanor Haley of What's Your Grief to put a spotlight on the need for various approaches to grieving. They have a plethora of resources, from their blog with entries titled ‘64 of the Best Things Ever Said to a Griever’, to training for professionals, to a podcast called What’s Your Grief. Then Sally guides us through tips for navigating the holidays, we honor hero Jeffrey Carr and answer a listener’s question about registering as an organ, eye and tissue donor. #DonateLife #podcast @whatsyourgrief
Check out these awesome pics from the festivities at Ochsner multi organ transplant holiday party. Santa delivered smiles and attendees brought thankfulness for the gift of life. Thanks to all those who stopped by to visit with us and to those who brought letters for their donor families. Just like writing the perfect letter to Santa, we know writing your first thank you can be a little overwhelming. Reach out to Sally Gentry at email@example.com to find out about our letter writing workshops.
Today we honored our donor HEROS during our Tree of Life Ceremony at Rapides Regional Medical Center.
We thank all of our donor HEROS for giving one of the most precious gifts... THE GIFT OF LIFE! ❤️
This mat, ya’ll!!!!! 🙌🏻❤️ Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency teams with Road Scholars Institute of Driving every year to increase organ, tissue & eye donation awareness & to increase the LA donor registry! This partnership is behind some innovative & creative ideas to help spur healthy conversations about donation!! This mat is ‘hot off the presses’ - literally!
Fresh Prints of LA is behind the design and production. ‘Here at Road Scholars Driving School, we wanted to incorporate several aspects that we advocate awareness for: impaired driving, distracted driving and organ donation. Our goal is to engage our students, the future drivers and promote education all while making the activities fun - since we are creative.’ - Road Scholars Driving School Managing Director, Chris Sibley
We love the ‘donation’ check points & the fact that ‘donation’ is made to be an important part of driving education!
For more information on this driving school and what the team is up to, please visit: www.RoadScholarsDriving.com
And, on a last note, when working on this FB post - Chris said, ‘don’t forget to ask them to add a heart to their license!’
#ThatIsJustCool 💙💚 PHOTOS: Thanks to recipient Wendy Haspel Lipsey for testing out the new mat! @roadscholarsdriving @freshprintslouisiana
