What? A week to celebrate, promote and give thanks to all organ, blood, tissue, bone marrow and stem cell donors. A week dedicated to raising awareness of donations, transplants and the wonderful Gift of Life.
When? Organ Donation Week 2016 is held between 5th and 9th September.
Why? This week is celebrated as Organ Donation Week, so that we can encourage and promote organ, blood and tissue donation. It’s purpose is to get more people to have the #DonationConversation with their loved ones, and to sign the register to be a donor. It is so crucial to talk to your friends and family about your wishes, as it takes the decision away from them at an already difficult time, all they are doing is carrying out your wishes. Remember to Live Loudly, and Donate Proudly!
