A permanent sculpture installation on the City Beach foreshore has been commissioned by DonateLife, a reminder of the importance of humanity’s interconnectedness and the ongoing legacy the act of donation offers to humanity.
WA Artist and architect Simon Youngleson’s sculptures are an expression of his life-long study of the human scale and his development of the Golden Scale of Human Proportion.
Unveiled in August 2020, the location itself is significant. It is a place where Western Australians who have received life transforming organ and tissue transplants and donor families can visit and take a moment to reflect.
At any given time in Australia, 1,700 people are waitlisted for an organ and tissue transplant. Registering as an organ and tissue donor is a selfless action that means even even when you die, you’ll be passing on a gift that will monumentally improve the lives of many.
Registration takes only a minute at donatelife.gov.au.
Remind others that organ and tissue donation has nothing to do with a driver’s licence in Australia (except in South Australia). Let them know you’ve opted to register as an organ donor, the impact they can make, and how they can follow your lead.
Or share this campaign with friends and family:
If organ donation is a legacy you want to leave, make sure your loved ones know. Your next of kin may decline to proceed with donation when the time comes if they are unaware or unsure of your wishes.
