Merry Christmas from GiveLife

Merry Christmas from GiveLife

Just a short note to wish you all a Merry Christmas and New Year!

Thank you for your support this year, we've had some highs and lows but seem to be making progress. Not a week goes by without a news article of some sort in the media on the subject of organ donation. I work constantly on my new found friends in the press to keep the issue alive.

The select committee have submitted their recommendations to the government. We now must wait for their response, due in February.

If you didn't get to see the select committee report on our petition a copy is available on the website.

Interest is picking up considerably, as I note that last month we had 22,000 hits on our website!
