A rose is a symbol of love, loss and renewal. It represents something different to every family; to some it is a symbol of hope, to others it is an expression of grief, and to still others it is an offering of gratitude.

Who Can Participate? Any family or individual who has been touched by organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation can dedicate a rose on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float to bear the name of someone who has given, received, awaits, or died while waiting for the gift of life.

You Can Select From Two Packages:
