National Transplant Week - Spell it out!

Hello!

Todays post is a little different however very important so if you do have a spare 2 minutes to read and get involved that would be incredible!

You may remember my post about my close friend who is awaiting a liver transplant (you can read that HERE) and from the 7th - 13th July it is National Transplant Week so here I am trying to raise a little more awareness with a campaign called #spellitout

I'm kicking thing of with the letters 'I' + 'W':


Here are some stats about organ donation and why it is so important to register and let your friends and family know exactly what you want to happen!

·         Just 45% of families agree to organ donation going ahead if they are unaware of their loved one’s decision to be a donor but this figure rises to 95% when they know the decision

·         Even though 82% of people would donate or would consider donating,  only 50% have talked about it with their families.


You can sign up to be an organ donor HERE and if you do decide to make the important (but SUPER easy to sign-up) choice then please share your decision with your loved ones!

The next blogger I am tagging for the letter 'A' is Mum in the Madhouse and you can check out her post tomorrow!

Don't forget to follow #spellitout via Twitter so you can see all the posts!

  1. Thanks for passing this on to me. I feel really strongly about this, which is why I took part in the campaign too

  2. This is an excellent post! I'm glad to see that people are making others more aware of what having donor card can do. My Dad had a liver transplant 15 years ago, & without the kindness of another person that's 15 years I would never of had with him!
