Logan Boulet’s parents, Toby and Bernadine Boulet, have launched a new initiative to honour the Humboldt Broncos bush crash victims while raising awareness for the importance of Organ Donation.

Logan was one of the 16 people who died after the junior hockey team’s bus and a semi-truck collided in rural Saskatchewan last year.

Logan was an organ donor, and his organs went on to save a number of people.

When this story made headlines in the wake of the tragedy, it inspired people from all over Canada to register as an organ donor.

Canadian Blood Services said there were 99,742 registrations in April alone.

This has been named the Logan Boulet affect.

In a press conference at Lethbridge City Hall today, Logan’s parents introduced Green Shirt Day.

The inaugural event will be held on April 7, 2019.

The objective of Green Shirt Day is to honour and remember Logan and his generosity.

It also aims to continue to raise awareness for the importance of organ donor registration in Canada.

Registration numbers have jumped from 20 per cent to 23 per cent, but the Boulets say they feel there is room for improvement.

Green Shirt Day will be held every year on April 7.
