When I started this blog it was intended to be a light, fun hearted look at some great products and services. But every now and again something comes along that’s a little more serious and I need to share it with you.
Are you an organ donor? I’m guessing most people will say “no, but it is my intention to be, I just haven’t gotten around to it”.
While over 80% of people intend to donate, only 16% have registered
One organ and tissue donor can save the lives of up to 10 people and transform the lives of many more. With around 1,400 Australians waiting for a life-saving transplant, and a further 12,000 people on dialysis, the generous act of organ and tissue donation has a far reaching effect, changing the lives of both transplant recipients and their families. Even if you have noted your intention on your driver’s license you still need to register.
I know personally how much impact this can have on a family. A very dear friend of mine has her husband beside her today because someone generously decided to donate the heart of a family member. So while we don’t want to think about such things, it’s really important to make your intentions clear and to notify your family of your wishes.
So today is the day. A new website has been launched to make it super easy.
So easy that you are going to do it right now.
So pull out your Medicare card and hit the link below and fill out your details. And then share this blog link on your social media and tag your family so they know you have done it and that is your wish. And encourage them to do it too.
You might save someone’s dad or someone’s mum or someone’s child.
And it takes 1 minute. It’s a no brainer folks.
