Thank You to All who Joined us for the Movie Screening featuring ORDINARY ANGELS
On February 14, 2024, Valentine's Day AND National Donor Day, Donate Life Connecticut, Lionsgate Movies, and AMC Theaters hosted a private film screening of "Ordinary Angels" before its official release.
The film is based on the true story of a struggling hairdresser who finds a renewed sense of purpose when she meets a widowed father working hard to care for his two daughters. With his youngest critically ill and waiting for a liver transplant, the fierce woman single-handedly rallies an entire community to help.
What made the evening even more special was that we were able to surprise one of our board members and her family with meeting the man who gave a portion of his liver to her little boy and saved his life. Watch the moving story here as The Torres Family meets their hero and liver donor, Lawrence Lewis.

Request a Speaker
Donate Life Connecticut representatives and volunteers are always willing to speak about donation. There are many appropriate ways to discuss donation in a public setting, such as during:
elementary, middle school, or high school classes
driver's education classes
religious group meetings
civic and service group meetings
If you are interested in having a DLC representative speak at your event, please contact us. Thank you.
This volunteer-based coalition believes that working together with a common voice is the best way to reach the goal of increasing the donor registry, which will inevitably impact the number of transplants that give new life and hope to people suffering from fatal illness or life threatening injury.
Donate Life Connecticut is dedicated to the purpose of public education and awareness for all Connecticut residents concerning the lifesaving benefits of organ and tissue donation and increasing the number of registered donors.
