        Green is the color for any organ donation. I'm wondering if kidney specifically is orange only because the National Kidney Foundation sells orange "Love Your Kidneys" bracelets. Just a thought...

          I got an email from the National Kidney Foundation about hats they are now selling that say "Love Your Kidneys" and it is written in orange as well. But No that is only orange because the National Kidney Foundation's colours are Orange and Red where as in my country (Canada) the Kidney Foundation of Canada's colours or blue and white so everything here is blue.

          That is the issue I am having with the Kidney Foundation of Canada with what colour stands for kidneys actually. It seems similar to when DaVita had the blue bracelets while everyone else had the green bracelets. The Blue was (is) their colour. They no longer sell them however but everyone else I talked to said kidney AND organ donation is green. But I can't convince my kidney foundation of that.

          So instead I am concentrating on big red kidneys to put on things I will still wear green ribbons on my shirts and jackets

            I would wear a bracelet that reflected CKD if it were similar to the yellow ones (Live Strong) Lance has made so popular.

            Stage 3 (GFR 35) & Diabetes.

                In Canada we have red kidney stickers that say that I remember them from when I was a little kid. It is kinda odd to see that slogan now becoming so popular in the USA when Canada could not get the word out there lol

                    I feel like this is part of the issue. We have no one set color to represent this disease. Like breast cancer.

                        22brooklyn Go to search at the top of the page and put in braclets. There is info there and a picture of a green ribbon. Read them all to get down to that picture and you will have your answer.
