Donor Day

A friend of mine, Holly Shaw, has been working really hard on her Battlefront Campaign that I have mentioned in previous posts. She has come up with the absolutely awesome idea of holding a Donor Day on 7th April.

Here's some more info from the lovely lady herself...

What is Donor Day?

To mark World Health Day (7 April 2009), I am organising a Donor Day to raise more awareness of Organ Donation and to encourage more people across the UK to sign up to the Organ Donor Register.

Donor Desk

I am setting up a Donor Desk in a public space in London to talk to people about Organ Donation and encouraging them to be pro-active and sign up. Leaflets will be available to people who want more information about it. A laptop will be to hand so people can sign up on the spot via UK Transplant but you will still be able to sign up the ‘old fashioned’ way using the Organ Donor Registration Form.

Could you organise your own Donor Desk in a public place, health organisation or work place?

If you would like to get involved and set up your own Donor Desk all you would need is a desk, leaflets on Organ Donation, Registration leaflets/laptop and a person to man the desk!

Get involved... and get people to sign up!

If you are unable to hold your own Donor Desk but would still like to get involved you can do this without even having to leave your arm chair....Check this out....

Do get involved whether it be holding a Donor Desk or just spreading the word on Facebook.

I'm going to be helping Holly out on the day. I'll post more details about where our desks will be so do pop down and say hello if you happen to be in the area!
