Boy Scouts Donor Awareness Patch
The Donor Awareness Patch requires that the scouts learn about donation and then go home and discuss donation with three family members. The education of the scouts can be accomplished by having the scout leader present donation information to their Troop or having a representative of Donate Life Northwest (staff or volunteer) present at the scout meeting, answer questions, and give the scouts all the information they need to understand donation, its impact on individuals and the community, and the necessity of talking to their family about donation.
Girl Scouts Donate Life Patch Program
The Donate Life Patch Program for Girl Scouts aims to teach the scouts positive values, challenge seeking, and community problem solving, all while learning how to save and heal lives through organ donation. Girl Scouts can participate in a variety of age-appropriate activities in order to earn their patch. Check out the Quick Start Guide to find recommended patch program activities and learn about organ, eye, and tissue donation. Contact Donate Life Northwest (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inquire about the availability of patches.
