There are so many great TED talks out there. Why not host your own TED screening and discussion for Dying To Know Day?

Dying To Know Day is August 8th!
Dying to Know Day encourages all Australians to take action toward more open and honest conversations about death, dying and bereavement.
So whether you need to get your Will sorted (45% of us die without one) or tell your family you want to be an organ donor (44% of us don’t do that) or get over that “I don’t know what to say” feeling – Dying To Know Day is all about getting informed, finding the words and breaking down taboos.
