What is DonateLife Thank You Day?

Friday, October 19, 2018

Sunday 18 November 2018 is DonateLife Thank You Day – a national day dedicated to honouring all organ and tissue donors and their families.  An initiative of the Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA), DonateLife Thank You Day provides an opportunity for all Australians to reflect on the importance of organ and tissue donation by simply saying ‘thank you’ and registering a decision to one day save lives at donatelife.gov.au

Each year, living and deceased donors and their families save and transform the lives of thousands of Australians through the gift of organ and tissue donation. Thank You Day is a time for the community to come together and recognise all donors and their families, whose stories inspire us to register at donatelife.gov.au and tell our family and friends that you are registered.

Help us promote awareness of the day in your workplace, your school and your community.

In the coming weeks there will be resources available to help you. These will include the Thank You Day Supporter Kit with a range of ideas and resources to get you started – including posters to download and content for social media.
