Yes, I’ve Blood
and his summer has probably been fantastic.
If I’d been a bit quicker getting my camera out of the car window you’d know that what I really want is for you to hand over your organs. When you’ve finished with them of course. Unless you want to make some quick cash with a kidney I guess.
I don’t know why people are so reluctant to give up these handy body parts they have when they don’t need them anymore. Such a waste just chucking them into the ground or a furnace. People are dying out there who could use them.
I always said they could have anything of mine they wanted except my eyes. I just had a problem with the idea of someone standing over me with a scalpel popping out my eyeballs. Now my eyesight is so tardy I doubt they’d want them anyway. But what the hell I’ve decided to stop being a frilly blouse and let them have them anyway. And I must admit it does give me a bit of a laugh thinking that one day someone could be walking around with a slice of my skin on them. Because of the tattoos. Imagine if someone who knew me saw someone else walking around wearing my ink.
Australia has one of the worlds lowest organ donation rates yet we have one of the worlds most successful transplant success rates.
In 2010 there were only 309 organ donors in Australia.
So hand them over. Tell your family so they know you’re willing and register as a donor and carry a donor card with you so the hospital knows to whip them out while they’re still warm.
Go on, you won’t need them.
