Would you like to help raise awareness of non-directed altruistic kidney donation and support Give a Kidney?
Give a Kidney Ambassadors are people who are willing to work with the charity to increase public awareness of non-directed living kidney donation. This might be by engaging with the media, giving a presentation to a local group, manning a stand at a local event, fundraising – or all of the above and more.
We’re running a special event in York on Saturday 25 June to launch our ambassador programme. Attendees will hear what we are setting out to achieve with the programme and how it will operate. They will see updated presentations and learn how to access the latest resources and information on non-directed living kidney donation.
In the afternoon, Professor Derek Manas, President of the British Transplantation Society, will give his own perspective on altruistic donation. Latest research around motivation will be shared and Give a Kidney’s aims and objectives will be explained. We will provide advice on the best way to approach local media, as well as presentation skills and how to answer those most frequently asked questions.
The day will also be an excellent opportunity for kidney donors to meet up at a venue that may be more accessible for some than our London AGM venue.
