One of our proudest projects at Transplant Australia is the Donor Family Quilt. The rationale behind a quilt is simple: it allows a number of individual stories to be told while collectively it is a wonderful symbol for the gift of donation in that quilts are seen as warm and embracing.
The Quilt is an amazing commemorative piece that captures and engages the public where it is on display, telling the story of some of the wonderful organ and tissue donors who have saved countless lives.
For transplant recipients the Quilt is a way to treasure and remember those who have given them a second chance at life. The Quilt is a beautiful display, with each individual square coming together to form a bigger story – the story of organ and tissue donation in Australia.
