Gift of Life is pleased to join with DonateLife to acknowledge organ and tissue donors and their families.
DonateLife Thank You Day is a national day to recognise all Australians who make organ and tissue donation possible. DonateLife Thank You Day 2020 will be held on 22 November 2020. DonateLife Thank You Day is an important opportunity for the Australian community to collectively say Thank You to all the individuals and their families who make donation possible. Their stories inspire other Australians to register as organ and tissue donors and discuss with family and friends. Each year thousands of Australian lives are saved and transformed through the generosity of deceased and living organ and tissue donors and their families. Families play a crucial role in the donation process because they are asked to confirm their loved one wanted to be a donor, and provide vital health information before donation proceeds. Families also help the broader community understand donation by generously sharing their stories with the public. In doing so, these families help to educate Australians about donation and the comfort that it can bring families. More details are on the DonateLife website
