DonateLife Week 2021 is almost upon us, this year we’re celebrating 10 years of DonateLife Week by asking Australians to get involved in the Great Registration Race for DonateLife Week.

We are running the Great Registration Race for DonateLife Week from Thursday 8 July and through August with a big push during DonateLife Week: Sunday 25 July to Sunday 1 August.

With a decrease in donation and transplantation activity during 2020 due to COVID-19, it has never been more important to encourage others to register as organ and tissue donors.

To celebrate a decade of DonateLife Week, we have a new look and fresh ambition. There are around 13 million Australians aged 16+ who are eligible to register as an organ and tissue donor – but haven’t.

For ‘The Great Registration Race for DonateLife Week’ our goal is to encourage up to 100,000 more Australians to join the Australian Organ Donor Register. 

Help us spread the word about The Great Registration Race for DonateLife Week by sharing content included in this kit via your social media, e-newsletters, websites or by hosting or attending an event where it is safe to do so.

You’ll be encouraging Australians to register to be organ and tissue donors, and to have the conversation with their family and friends.

Head to our DonateLife Week page to find out more information about how you can participate in DonateLife Week.
