Elementary School Honors Recovering Classmate With ‘Orlando Day’ Celebration

An elementary school in Jacksonville, Florida recently held a special event called “Orlando Day” to honor a classmate who is recovering from a liver transplant. The event took place at Westfields Elementary School and aimed to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation. Orlando, a 10-year-old student, underwent the transplant surgery just a few months ago and his classmates wanted to show their support.

During “Orlando Day,” students and teachers wore green shirts and participated in various activities related to organ donation. They also watched educational videos and learned about the process of transplantation. The event served as a reminder of the impact that organ donation can have on someone’s life and highlighted the need for more people to become donors.

Orlando’s journey has not only brought the school community together but has also sparked a conversation about organ donation. The event shed light on the significant impact that transplants can have and the importance of registering as an organ donor. With their efforts to raise awareness and support their classmate, the students at Westfields Elementary have shown immense compassion and empathy.
