Organ Donation, the Rose Parade, and Our Journey to Save Lives


Bryan reflects on the challenges and rewards of building a national public health campaign within the framework of one of the world’s most-watched events. Insights from his book Hope Blooms reveal how the Donate Life Rose Parade Float campaign elevated the visibility of organ and tissue donation; united fragmented advocacy efforts; recast the cause from being identified with death to an affirmation of life; gave a platform and voice to donor families; contributed to a remarkable rise in donation rates nationwide; and demonstrated how honoring each other can unify us.


How the Donate Life Community Blossomed

Over the course of a decade, the Donate Life logo evolved from a brochure footnote to the umbrella brand for organ, eye and tissue donation advocacy. Bryan recounts how national initiatives and shared purpose brought a fragmented community together and supercharged organ and tissue donation rates to unprecedented heights.


Stepping Up: Celebrating the Power of Volunteers

Organ donation advocacy relies on deeply motivated volunteers to inspire the public to embrace the cause as their own. Drawing on his 15 years as a leader in the field, Bryan shines a spotlight on the seminal contributions that volunteers have made to local, regional, and national Donate Life initiatives.


Charting the Course from Idea to Impact

How do you turn an idea not just into reality, but into a robust initiative designed and built for longevity and lasting impact? Bryan draws on his creative career in screenwriting, professional sports, sponsorship, branding and organ donation to present meaningful and groundbreaking case studies that have stood the test of time.
