Sunday, April 7th, is officially the Green Shirt Day in Canada.
Green Shirt Day was made to remember the legacy of organ donor, Logan Boulet, who was one of the 16 victims killed in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash on April 6, 2018.
The summer prior to the crash, Boulet informed his father that he wanted to become an organ donor. Following the crash, six of Boulet's organs were donated, effectively saving the lives of six people.
A year later, thousands of Canadians have followed in Logan's wishes, thus, creating the "Logan Boulet Effect."
Thousands of Canadians have signed up to be organ donors, and to raise even more awareness about Logan's heroism and promote the cause, Canadians have been urged to show their support by wearing green.
Over 200,000 people have since signed up because of Logan's initiatives.
“Today, wear green and let’s inspire one another by registering and telling our family, because we are all in this together, said the Green Day Shirt Twitter account.
Logan decided to become a donor after his late fitness trainer Rick Suggit registered as one. Five weeks before the crash, he officially became a donor on his 21st birthday.
"If Rick can save six lives, I can save six lives,” Boulet had told his father, as per CTV News.
