Please don't leave organ form on table

THE Bendigo Advertiser has signed up more than 50 new organ donors in the first week of our Courtney's Quest - - we desperately need more.

Sure 50-plus is a great start but our aim of 1532 new donors in 30 days to represent every single person presently waiting for a life-saving organ transplant in Australia seems a long, long way off.

We've heard people say they've ripped out the form published in last Saturday's and Wednesday's Bendigo Advertiser but haven't got around to filling it out and sending it off.

Please, follow that through.

What's also been encouraging looking at the responses so far is the number of families who have signed up.

Or simply visit www.humanservices.gov.au/organdonor and sign up but please don't forget to register on the Courtney's Quest pledge book on our website so we can keep track.

A group of Bendigo Advertiser staff signed up this week and have encouraged other businesses to do the same.

What's also been encouraging looking at the responses so far is the number of families who have signed up.

It's clear these families have sat down and discussed organ donation and the value of such a contribution.

That's what Courtney's Quest is all about.

Can you help?
