BENEFITING: Gift of Life Family House
Our dear Eric left this world too soon. We miss him so much and as his birthday approaches, we thought it would be nice to honor his life by having an on-line fundraiser to support The Gift of Life Family House. As many of you know, thanks to family, friends and Temple University's Gamma Iota Sigma fundraising efforts, there is a beautiful guest room at The Family House that has Eric's name on it. We'd like to raise money to honor Eric's memory and help those that need a home away from home be able to manage the cost of staying at The Family House. Although reasonably priced, some families cannot afford the $40.00/night charge. Let's see if we can't lighten the load for the families that have loved ones going through the transplant process by raising funds to cover the cost of lodging for those in need. I can't think of a better way to honor Eric's kind and giving nature. Wait!! There is one more thing that you can do--please, make sure you are a registered organ donor. Eric was an organ and tissue donor. He lives on in others! We were blessed to have heard from 3 of the recipients and met 2 very grateful organ recipients and their families. Eric helped so many peoople prior to and through his passing - let's honor him by helping The Gift of Life Family House do what they do best -support those struggling through each day living with hope and a prayer that their loved one will get better. Our love and thanks to all of you for remembering Eric!
