It is 10 years since Transplant Australia team up with Treloar Roses to produce Transplant Australia’s Thank You Rose. Unbelievably across Australia there are now almost 35,000 Thank You Roses in people’s homes and garden.
Transplant Australia CEO, Chris Thomas, said the inspiration of the rose was to provide an attractive product which could encapsulate gratitude and thanks.
“While it was principally to enable recipients to thank donors, families, carers and health care staff, we always knew that such a simple name would resonate with the wider public,” Mr Thomas said.
“We also hope it has sparked a conversation about the gift of life and encouraged people to register at donatelife.gov.au. Organ donation saves lives and enables families to stay together. Those decisions certainly deserves our constant thanks.”
Transplant Australia receives $1 for every rose sold with a total of 34,572 roses sold over the past 10 years and 3,800 roses in 2021
