A Yarn That Could Save A Life
Welcome to Queensland Remote Aboriginal Media’s A Yarn That Could Save A Life Project.
This unique project uses a series of engaging, informative, and sometimes humorous radio plays
• Raise awareness among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of the facts about organ and tissue donation
• Address existing barriers that may be preventing people from discussing organ and tissue donation and becoming donors
• Raise awareness of the importance of discussing and knowing the donation decisions of family members
• Promote DonateLife Week and the availability of information and resources relating to organ and tissue donation
We encourage you to share this great series of six radio plays with your local radio audience.
We also ask that you use these audio segments, as well as the information contained in thisnewsletter, to discuss organ and tissue donation with your listeners.
