We’re urging you to give the gift of life this Christmas.
You only have to register as an organ donor to take a huge step towards giving the best gift ever. Life.
Waiting lists for transplants in the UK are long and there is always a need for healthy working organs.
Gift of life
One person’s organs can save and enhance many lives – whatever your age, gender and skin colour.
Never mind stockings and tinsel and gifts people don’t need. Give a gift people are crying out for.
Organ donation wishes
You can capture your organ donation wishes as part of your Will but often a Will is read a bit after death so it’s essential to cover all bases and go online to register as an organ donor.
If you are on the NHS Donor Register it makes the process for medical staff easier and is another step towards ensuring your wishes are clear.

We love this positive take on the crazy ice bucket challenge that swept the globe in the summer of 2014. A 5 year old with half a heart asks for your help with the gift of life.
Only one-in-three people who need an organ transplant get one. Think of the difference you could make by giving the gift of life.
