Proclamation 6672--Nancy Moore Thurmond National Organ and Tissue Donor 
Awareness Week, 1994


April 15, 1994

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    Perhaps the most precious legacy that one human being can bestow 
upon another is the gift of life. The unselfish decision to donate one's 
organs after death is an act of generosity that can mean the beginning 
of new life for others. Advanced medical knowledge and techniques have 
allowed bone marrow transplants to bring hope and healing to children 
with leukemia; the gift of a new heart, lung, or liver has enabled many 
terminally ill Americans who would otherwise have died, to live longer, 
fuller lives. A new kidney has provided improved health, and the 
donation of a cornea has restored the miracle of sight. Unfortunately, 
however, many people still wait, and many people still die waiting for a 
suitable organ to become available.
    Today there are more than 34,000 patients on the national transplant 
waiting list, and a new patient is added to the list every 20 minutes. 
The gap between the number of patients on the waiting list and the 
number of donors continues to widen, and many more will needlessly die. 
The United States has the potential to maintain an adequate supply of 
donor organs. To fulfill that potential we must increase public 
awareness of the urgent need for donation. All Americans need to know 
that by completing a donor card and carrying it, and by discussing with 
their families their wishes to donate, they may give the blessing of 
life to other Americans in need of organs for transplantation.
    One year ago, on April 14, 1993, a tragic auto accident claimed the 
life of Nancy Moore Thurmond, the beautiful, gifted, and caring young 
daughter of Senator Strom Thurmond and his wife, Nancy. Their courageous 
decision to donate her organs so that others might live was in 
accordance with Nancy's wishes and, even in death, has enabled the 
promise of her young life to continue. The Thurmond family, along with 
others who have made the same magnanimous gesture for their loved ones, 
can find some measure of comfort in knowing that they have, indeed, 
bequeathed the gift of life.
    The Congress, by Public Law 103-30, has designated the week 
beginning April 17, 1994, as ``Nancy Moore Thurmond National Organ and 
Tissue Donor Awareness Week'' and has authorized and requested the 
President to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United 
States to observe this week with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and 
activities.
    Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United 
States of America, do hereby proclaim the week of April 17 through April 
23, 1994, as Nancy Moore Thurmond National Organ and Tissue Donor 
Awareness Week. I urge all health care professionals, educators, the 
media, public and private organizations concerned with organ donation 
and transplantation, and all Americans to join me in promoting greater 
and more widespread awareness and acceptance of this humanitarian cause.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this fifteenth day 
of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-four, and 
of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and 
eighteenth.
                                            William J. Clinton

[Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 2:06 p.m., April 15, 
1994]

Note: This proclamation was published in the Federal Register on April 
19. This item was not received in time for publication in the 
appropriate issue.

Proclamation 6673--National Volunteer Week, 1994

April 15, 1994

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    Since the founding of our democracy, the ideal of community service 
has been an integral part of our national character. As the words of 
Thomas Jefferson remind us, ``A debt of service is due from every man to 
his country proportioned to the bounties which nature and fortune have 
measured to him.'' Throughout our history, Americans have been called 
upon to meet his challenge a thousandfold. For our Nation is a place of 
tremendous blessings--a noble purpose, a wealth of resources, a diverse 
and determined people. We are rich in the gifts of freedom. During this 
week especially, we realize anew that shared responsibility is freedom's 
price.
    That our vibrant spirit of community has made our country strong 
reflects our understanding of this enduring truth. Every day, countless 
volunteers across America work to address the fundamental necessities of 
our people--educating our youth, protecting our environment, caring for 
those in need. From children who help older Americans after school to 
volunteer firemen who guard our neighborhoods while we sleep, these 
dedicated individuals bring a sense of hope and security to everyone 
whose lives they touch. Their service makes us stronger as a Nation, 
setting a powerful example of leadership and compassion to which we all 
can aspire.
    This past year has marked the beginning of a new era for America, an 
era in which those of us who have benefited from this great land are 
acting on our instincts to help others in return. Though government has 
an important role to play in meeting the many challenges that remain 
before us, we are coming to understand that no organization, including 
government, will fully succeed without the active participation of each 
of us. Working family by family, block by block, the efforts of 
America's volunteers are vital to enabling this country to live up to 
the true promise of its heritage.
    Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United 
States of America, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and 
laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim the week of April 17 
through April 23, 1994, as ``National Volunteer Week.'' I call upon all 
Americans to observe this week with appropriate programs, ceremonies, 
and activities as an expression of their gratitude.
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this fifteenth day 
of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-four, and 
of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and 
eighteenth.
                                            William J. Clinton

[Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 11:03 a.m., April 18, 
1994]

Note: This proclamation was released by the Office of the Press 
Secretary on April 16, and it was published in the Federal Register on 
April 19.
