Support Jersey Day – Friday 30th August 2019

JERSEY DAY is all about promoting awareness of The Organ and Tissue Authority and the DONATE LIFE network.

 

On Friday August 30, 2019 we are asking schools and workplaces across Australia to allow students and employees to wear their favourite sporting jersey to school or work to show their support for the DONATE LIFE network and begin the conversation with their friends and families about Organ Donation.

JERSEY DAY has been inspired by the story of NATHAN GREMMO who was tragically lost in an accident in May 2015. Nathan’s family chose to give the gift of life to others to honour the legacy of Nathan’s generous personality.

Oakhill College Netball Teams recently utilised their final home games of the season to show support for and to promote Jersey Day. They played with specially designed Jersey Day match balls and at the post-match functions presented these match balls to the opposition being Central Coast Grammar School, Redlands, Barker College and Chevalier College. These schools will in turn use this ball to promote Jersey Day in their own school.

This campaign is all about raising awareness – there is no requirement to raise funds. Simply wear your favourite sporting jersey to school or work on Friday August 30, 2019 and begin the conversation with your friends and family about organ donation.
