The theme of Organ Donor Awareness Week 2022 is "Share Your Wishes"
Thousands of people in Ireland, and millions around the world, are enjoying extra gifted years of life thanks to the generosity of Organ Donors and their families.
Our campaign poster this year features 32 of these recipients, who between them have gained over 400 years of extra life since their transplant.
These extra years have allowed them to be there for weddings, communions, births, holidays and much more. For some of the youngest on our poster, their transplant has simply allowed them the freedom to be a child.
