The Petals for PlusLife project aims to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation, which can save or greatly enhance a life. One tissue donor can impact on the well-being and mobility of up to 60 people.
During DonateLife week, petal jars were placed around the Perth metropolitan region for people to find and take home. Members of the public were encouraged to share photos of their petal experiences on social media, using the hashtag #petalsforpluslife for others to see. Once the flowers had faded, we asked for people to replace the flowers and leave the jar somewhere else for someone else to find; or to pass it forward to a friend or colleague to start a new conversation about organ and tissue donation.
Talk to your family and register your organ and tissue donation wishes at www.donorregister.gov.au.
These are some of our favourite photos from DonateLife Week 2018.
