Green Shirt Day

April 8, 2019

Across Canada on Sunday, people wore green for the first Green Shirt Day, in memory of Logan Boulet and to raise awareness for organ donations.

One of the 16 people killed in the Saskatchewan bus crash a year ago, Boulet signed up to be donor, and six people later benefited from his organs.

What soon followed has been called the Logan Boulet Effect — Canadian Blood Services estimates that within two months of Boulet's death more than 150,000 people registered to become organ donors.

Toby says his son's legacy makes them very proud.

"We're asked this question many, many times. At the beginning, we'd say well, if this is a silver medal, we'll take it. But now it's like, it is a silver medal and I'll gladly take it," he said.
