Humboldt Broncos ice hockey player Logan Boulet succumbed to his injuries on April 7, 2018 after a tragic bus crash involving his team. His organs were donated so that six lives could be saved. Many people also placed hockey sticks in front of their front doors, and wore their hockey jerseys to honour the team. As news of his organ donation spread, over 100,000 Canadians felt inspired and registered to become organ donors in the days and weeks that followed. What happened following Logan’s selfless act, is nothing less than miraculous and became known across Canada as the “Logan Boulet Effect”. Canadian Transplant Association Green Shirt Day hopes to continue Logan’s legacy of giving, by inspiring Canadians to talk to their families and register as organ donors. The donor registration mechanism varies from province to province – all details are captured on greenshirtday.ca
