Rose Dedication Garden
A rose is a symbol of love, loss and renewal. It represents something different to everyone; to some it is a symbol of hope, or an expression of grief, and to others it is a gift of gratitude.
The Rose Dedication Garden is an opportunity to honor donors, families, recipients and candidates waiting for transplant with a personalized rose placed on the Donate Life Rose Parade® Float inspiring tens of millions of people nationwide to save lives as donors.
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, eye and tissue donation. Altogether, thousands of roses create a Dedication Garden that is a featured design element on the Donate Life float each year.
Who Can Participate?
Individuals, families, and organizations touched by organ, eye, and tissue donation.
