Gift of Life - Living Green Ribbon Event

There was a lot of green today in Yonge-Dundas Square, just one day after reported gunfire during the 4-20 pro-weed gathering, for a Living Green Ribbon Event. The Trillium Gift of Life Network handed out boxes of green, plastic rain ponchos for people to wear as they gathered together in the shape of a giant ribbon. Mayor David Miller, pictured above, joined the large crowd along with a large heart to draw attention as part of National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Week.

The bright green ponchos covered many business suits as those bankers and business people lent their support.

Their website says "Trillium Gift of Life Network, The Kidney Foundation of Canada, and The Canadian Liver Foundation, working in partnership with local volunteers, are holding a Living Green Ribbon Event in Toronto's Yonge/Dundas Square on Wednesday, April 21st from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.

Torontonians are invited to the square to demonstrate their support for the need for organ and tissue donors, learn more about the donation consent registration process, enjoy some entertainment and join the volunteers, wearing green ponchos or carrying YES placards, as we come together to form a Living Green Ribbon in the middle of Yonge/Dundas Square!"
