WEAR YOUR FAVOURITE JERSEY, HAVE SOME FUN AND BEGIN A CONVERSATION ABOUT ORGAN & TISSUE DONATION

What We Do

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 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 Participate

Pop on your favourite jersey, take a photo or video and post it to social media with

#jerseydayau #donatelife
