Gift of Life Butterfly Project

April is National Donate Life Month. Show your support for organ, eye and tissue donation by participating in Live On Nebraska’s Gift of Life Butterfly Project. The Butterfly Project is a community art initiative to show the impact of donation and transplantation and to encourage others to register as donors.

Live On Nebraska will provide participants with a small (6″) butterfly to decorate in a theme of their choice that represents the gift of life. The butterfly is a blank canvas, but your design should reflect the gift of life.


The three butterflies that receive the most votes will receive a $50 gift certificate to Live On Nebraska’s Threadless merchandise store. Live On Nebraska staff will select an additional two runner-up butterflies to receive $25 gift certificates.
