DonateLife Week 2018 Sunday 29 July – Sunday 5 August
DonateLife Week is Australia’s national awareness campaign to promote organ and tissue donation, with a simple message:
‘What are you waiting for? Register as an organ and tissue donor today to save lives at donatelife.gov.au’
More Australian lives could be saved if more people decided to become organ and tissue donors.
You can make a real difference to the lives of others by registering with the Australian Organ Donor Register online and telling your family and friends you want to be a donor.
Around 1,400 Australians and their families are desperately waiting for the call that a life-saving transplant could become available, and a further 12,000 people are waiting on dialysis.
Register to donate at donatlife.gov.au then share your decision through your social media networks, remembering to tag your friends, family and colleagues and encourage them to register too!
Organ and tissue donation is the ultimate gift - you can save and improve the lives of up to 10 or more people as a donor.
If you want to do more, download the DonateLife Week Supporters Kit and other resources that you can use in your workplace, club, business, school, or anywhere else in your community.
