The FilmLife Project was created to create awareness and conversations about organ donation through short film.
From the FilmLife Project website:
“FilmLife Project is a collaborative project in conjunction with Donate Life Week 2012 (19-26 February), that aims to inspire and encourage young people to have conversations that ask and find out their loved ones wishes around organ and tissue donation.
FilmLife exists to capture the stories of organ donation and transplantation through the eyes of young filmmakers.
We believe that more people need to be asking and knowing their loved one’s wishes, and we’re inviting passionate people to spark these conversations by creating films about organ and tissue donation.”
My wonderful friend Camille asked me to take part in the FilmLife blogger challenge.
I think it is so important to give your organs and tissue to those that need them after you die. I also think it’s important to donate your organs and tissue to research to help others. Your organs and tissue could save the lives of up to 10 people, and improve the lives of many more. (Donate Life states “in 2010, 309 organ donors gave 931 Australians a new chance in life”.)
