The Quilt

For more than 12 years Transplant Australia has proudly displayed the Australian Donor Family Quilt.

Originally unveiled at the Australian Transplant Games in Canberra in 2010, the Quilt features beautiful patches lovingly prepared by donor families as a tribute to their loved ones.

The individual quilts have toured Australia and have been shown at transplant games, thanksgiving services, and other moments of reflection when we thank donors and their families for their contribution to the gift of life.

Transplant Australia is now committed to producing a further quilt and is reaching out to donor families across Australia to submit their patch representing their loved one. The quilts will be displayed at the World Transplant Games in Perth next April.

In years to come, we hope donor families will continue to contribute to this wonderful project so that we can both honour donors and encourage more Australians to register as organ donors.
