It’s Organ Donation Week (ODW) from 3 – 9 September and we’d like to share your personal stories about organ and tissue donation to encourage people to talk about this very important, very emotive subject.
We featured several stories last year and we’d like to hear from you whether you’ve had a transplant, has a family member who has received a transplant or is waiting for a transplant or if you have been a living donor or a loved one has donated after they have died.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your stories and photos.
You can also help to promote ODW message and videos on social media with friends and family.
- Be an ambassador for organ donation and use ODW materials in our Promoting Donation Hub.
- Visit the ODW stand in your local centre.
- Encourage schools in your area to use our updated teaching resources on organ and tissue donation.
