LITTLE FREE PANTRY

 
DONATE LIFE
It's DonateLife Week.
Organ donation saves lives. And it only takes ONE minute to sign up!


For around 1,750 Australians currently on the organ transplant waitlist, it’s a matter of survival.
And there are many more whose lives could be transformed through a tissue transplant.
But Australia does not have enough registered organ and tissue donors.
In fact, there are 13 million people who are eligible to register, but haven’t. We need to turn this around.

Anyone 16+ can register - it doesn’t matter if you’re just 16 or in your 80s, what kind of lifestyle you lead, what country you’re from or how healthy you are – you can still register as an organ and tissue donor. Even if you’ve had COVID, you can register - it really does only take one minute at https://www.donatelife.gov.au
