WHAT’S THE POINT

Right. We’re sorry for this page but it has to be done. We feel to fully appreciate the plight of organ donation in this wonderful country of ours you need to consider the following statistics...

One willing donor can potentially save the lives
of 10 people through organ and tissue donation
.

Need we say more about how heroic and cool Donor Mates are? Grant Kenny couldn’t drag 10 people out of a deadly rip at Bondi in a single swim, Superman couldn’t fly 10 people out of a burning building in a single bound and the Labor Party will undoubtedly have a new leader again in the next 10 weeks. Go on, be a Donor Mate.

 

It takes two hours to watch the latest Die Hard movie...

where over 100 people died a gruesome death and their organs couldn’t be donated because of the excessive force Bruce applied with his favorite Russian rocket launcher. It takes two minutes to register online at www.donorregister.gov.au or call 1800 777 203 to become an official donor. Easier.

 

Nearly half of all Australians don’t know...

the wishes of their loved ones when it comes to being a donor. If we all talked about our wishes at the annual family BBQ rather than take the p!ss at Uncle Bob getting wobbly on VB, the world would be a more Donor Mate kinda place.

 

Drinkers, smokers, old dudes, young dudes, overweight dudes...

and mates with some existing medical conditions can still be donors. This equally applies to the fans of the two-dozen beers and dodgy lamb sandwich routine every Saturday night. Yes, you are still a fine specimen of a human being despite the garlic sauce on your breath.

 

Scientists have proven that well travelled people...

make awesome organ donors. If you’ve done amazing things like get your heart rate up walking into the Grand Canyon, seen Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower, and partied until your organ(s) hurt with Swedish backpackers in Cairns, then don’t be shy—a promise to hand over your worldly bits when you’re done with them is better than a smiley faced SMS message to your best mate at Christmas time.

 

You’re in exceptionally brilliant hands...

regardless of whether you’re making a deposit or receiving a withdrawal. When it comes to our precious organs, Australian medical practitioners are some of the best-trained surgeons, doctors, nurses, researchers and coolest people in the world.
