Donor Remembrance Ceremony
Each year friends and families gather to remember Hawai'i's organ, tissue and eye donors at the annual Donor Remembrance Ceremony hosted by Legacy of Life Hawai'i. One of the highlights of the Donor Recognition Ceremony is the Monarch Butterfly Release, which allows each family to release a butterfly in remembrance of their loved one. Butterflies are released, symbolizing the release of the spirit and the transforming gift of donation.
Hope for the Holidays
Every year in November, Legacy of Life Hawai'i hosts a grief workshop for donor families called Hope for the Holidays. We gather to remember the love and compassion of Hawaii's organ and tissue donors, as well as honor the gift of life they gave through donation. Hope for the Holidays is an afternoon of healing grief activities. It is a time to share with one another, exchange stories, laugh and sometimes, cry.
