Top spot local AFLW team the Bass Coast Breakers are preparing for their round 12 match against Hastings on Sunday August 6th like any other, but supporters may notice a big difference on field next weekend come game time. As part of DonateLife week the team will be switching up their regular uniform and donning magenta socks and armbands to honour both organ donors and recipients.
The Breakers aren't the only footballers getting on board to support organ donation with both the AFL & AFLW leagues joining forces for this important cause and encouraging those who are willing to not only sign up but have the discussion with friends and family. According to DonateLife- 90 per cent of Australians believe it is important that their family knows their donation decision, just 56 per cent have made a decision about becoming a donor and only 51 per cent have discussed the subject with loved ones. The upcoming game will highlight the huge impact organ donation can make with personal stories from the players being shared and DonateLife staff will be on hand for the day to assist those wishing to sign up or ask any further questions however readers can jump online at donatelife.gov.au to register their decision at any time.
