WEAR YOUR FAVOURITE JERSEY, HAVE SOME FUN AND START
A CONVERSATION ABOUT ORGAN DONATION
Each Jersey Day we ask schools and workplaces across Australia to allow students and employees to wear their favourite sporting jersey to school or work and begin the conversation with their family and friends about the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor. Jersey Day was inspired by the gift of life that Nathan Gremmo (pictured) gave to six people when he became an organ donor at age 13.
Jersey Day is all about raising awareness – there is no requirement to raise funds. Jersey Day is fun, it’s free and by registering to become an organ and tissue donor you could be helping to save a life.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED WITH JERSEY DAY
1. Pop on your favourite jersey, or a Jersey Day jersey
. (We also have some social tiles
you can post in the lead up to the day to tell people you are participating.)
2. Take a photo or video in your jersey.
4. Explain what Jersey Day is in your caption, to help spread word about the importance of having a conversation about organ donation. Some examples are: “Jersey Day is the perfect opportunity to start a discussion with your loved ones about organ donation” or “Wear your favourite sporting jersey this Jersey Day, Friday September 2, 2022, to raise awareness for organ donation.”
5. Have a conversation with your loved ones about becoming an organ and tissue donor. It’s important they know your wishes.
