It bugs me that there is no ribbon to signify what we all go through with transplants. Heart transplants use red ribbons just because its heart related.
WE should start a movement for a ribbon for our cause. I have been going through colors trying to figure out what color would be a remembrance for us.

I think we should move for the color green, this is what I found out about it......
In ancient Greece, green symbolized victory.

Green means “go.” When “all systems are green,” it means everything is in order.

Green is a healing color, the color of nature.

Green, one of most-often cited favorite colors. It represents nature, environment, health, good luck, renewal, youth, vigor, spring, generosity.

"Its cool quality soothes, calms, and has great healing powers." It is often worn in operating rooms by surgeons.

Green is calming, the color of fresh beginnings and new life. Studies show that the color green increases well being, calmness and restful emotions. Those who love the color green are often affectionate, loyal and frank. Green lovers are also aware of what others think of them and consider their reputation very important. If green is your favorite color, chances are you're emotional, caring, and aware of those around you.

What do you think?

Personally, I think ribbons have been overdone. Why not think outside the box and come up with something that hasn't been done? How about a symbol of some kind?
Looking at the Transplant Cafe logo there is a green one in it :)  But I found the true colors post TX were more black & blue than green :)  It was the first time I ever thought it was okay to be bruised. :)
