DonateLife Thank You Day

 

On Sunday 19 November 2017 we are asking all Australians to take part in DonateLife Thank You Day.

DonateLife Thank You Day is a national day to honour all living and deceased organ and tissue donors and their families and to acknowledge their generosity, which saves and transforms the lives of others.

You may also like to help us promote the Day online, in your workplace, your school or your local club by using the resources which will become available on this page in the coming months.

Each year the lives of hundreds of Australians are saved and transformed through the generosity of living and deceased organ and tissue donors and their families that agreed to donation.

Australians of all ages, faith and cultural backgrounds can one day be in need of an organ or tissue transplant. DonateLife Thank You Day is an opportunity for the Australian community to come together and say ‘thank you’ to the individuals and families, whose stories should inspire us all to register on the Australian Organ Donor Register and discuss our donation decisions.

For inspiration, watch our video from DonateLife Thank You Day 2016.
