April 7, 2021 marks the third anniversary of Green Shirt Day, a day that honours the victims and families of the April 2018 Humboldt Broncos bus crash, while also spreading awareness about organ donation registration.
This year the Community Foundation wants to encourage those who have not yet registered as an organ donor, to do so. For every new registration from within the community of Southwestern Alberta, during the month of April, the Community Foundation will contribute $500, to a maximum of $10,000, to the Logan Boulet Endowment Fund in support of Green Shirt Day.
To register as an organ donor visit the Alberta Organ and Tissue Donation Registry Once you’ve registered, contact the Community Foundation by phone (403-328-5297) or email. No confidential information is required, only confirmation of your registration.
Logan, a defenceman for the Humboldt Broncos, died from injuries sustained in the 2018 bus crash. Because his parents knew that Logan wished to be an organ donor – he was inspired by his former coach Ric Suggitt, also an organ donor – they donated Logan’s organs, saving the lives of six other individuals.
Established by his family, Toby, Bernadine, and Mariko, in 2019, Logan’s fund honours his life by continuing to give back to the charities that mattered to himAnyone interested in supporting Logan’s fund directly may do so by contacting the Community Foundation at 403-328-5297 or through Canada Helps.
