About us

This website has been launched by Kidney Research UK, the country’s leading kidney research charity, and Give a Kidney, a charity devoted to living kidney donation, to raise awareness of living kidney donation and help more people understand what it means to be a living donor.

Make Your Mark has been made possible thanks to businessman and philanthropist Dr David Dangoor CBE, who has personal experience of living kidney donation.
