Dress Down Day

A Dress Down Day is a great way to support Gift of Life Family House while enjoying the luxury of a more casual day at work or school!


By organizing and participating in a Dress Down Day you can support Gift of Life Family House and the transplant families we serve while helping to increase awareness in the workplace of the importance of organ and tissue donation. For a twist, you could organize a themed Dress Down Day!

You simply choose a day when your organization would like to host a Dress Down Day to support Gift of Life Family House. Then have all of your co-workers donate a designated fee (typically $5) for the option to dress down. Remember, the more people that participate, the more money you will raise.

All registered participants will receive a Donate Life bracelet to wear during the day so everyone will know they are supporting Gift of Life Family House.

We would be happy to have a Gift of Life representative come to your business to make a presentation about Gift of Life Donor Program and the critical work of Gift of Life Family House. We can also provide posters in advance of the event to help publicize your Dress Down Day!

For more information, email Sara Cohen or call (267) 546-9800.
