DonateLife Thank You Day

Each year many Australian lives are saved and transformed through the generosity of organ and tissue donors, and their families.

The third Sunday in November is DonateLife Thank You Day. Join us to pause, remember and thank those Australians who gave the ultimate gift through organ and tissue donation

Thank You Day 2023 is happening on Sunday 19 November.

You can take part in Thank You Day by sharing a thank you message on social media channels and by spreading the word about the day with your networks.

How can I get involved?
