The Donate Life Dedication Garden offers donor families, transplant recipients and candidates, hospitals, transplant centers and organizations nationwide the opportunity to dedicate roses placed on the Donate Life float in the Rose Parade, which is watched by tens of millions of people in the U.S. and worldwide on New Year's Day.

Each dedicated rose is placed in a vial that carries a unique, personal message of love, hope and remembrance, and honors donors, recipients and others touched by organ and tissue donation. Altogether, thousands of roses create a Dedication Garden that is a featured design element on the Donate Life float each year.

Find out how you can be part of this special family of people touched by the gift of life.
