Save Lives Donate Organs Inc
SLDO is a not-for-profit organisation devoted to increasing awareness, education and, ultimately,the rate of organ and tissue donation in Australia.
- To raise public awareness of the benefits of organ and tissue donation;
- To spread knowledge and information about organ and tissue donation for Australians to ensure they understand the process of becoming a registered organ donor.
- To encourage choice around organ and tissue donation and to embrace the views of both those who chose to donate, or not donate, their organs and/or tissue.
We aim to be a resource for people looking for the facts about organ and tissue donation in Australia and how to register their intent. Major policy changes in this area in recent years have led to widespread misconceptions about how to become a registered organ donor in Australia.
SLDO will also raise funds to provide financial support for those involved in the organ donation or organ transplant process, organ transplant surgery, or ongoing medical treatment.
The idea for SLDO was started by Gold Coast local Brett Bullock who was diagnosed with chronic renal failure in his early 20’s and underwent a kidney transplant. Together with a few mates he saw a need to highlight the issues around organ donation in Australia.
Save Lives Donate Organs Inc was formed to start taking action and spreading awareness of the life saving benefits of organ donation that Australia is so far behind on. Our foundation members and management committee have all been a part of Brett’s journey in some way over the past few years and have been inspired by Brett’s humility in seeking to help others.
We share a common goal and hope to have others join with us as we move towards it.
