Floragraph Finishing Events

Since they first appeared on Donate Life's Rose Parade float entries in 2008, memorial "floragraph" portraits have provided a highly visible platform for donor families to share their pride in their loved ones' gifts of life. It has become customary for volunteers in the Los Angeles area to decorate the portraits in preparation for local media events organized by floragraph sponsors. The deeply meaningful act of a family applying the finishing touches to their loved one's portrait continues to inspire hundreds of media stories each year, broadening the campaign's reach to all corners of the country.
