As you all know, organ donation is a cause near and dear to my heart. As a natural offshoot of that cause, helping families through the transplant process has also become a part of my mission. It wasn't until after my kidney donation, and I became involved with The Gift of Life Family House that I realized how lucky we are to live so close to the best transplant centers. All we had to think about was the surgery without any concern for travel arrangements, accommodations or the expense of it all! Not to mention that we had our family right there with us, and that is a benefit that most families don't have at a time when it is most needed. That said, it is important during the holiday "giving" season that we not forget those less fortunate. A $40 donation will provide lodging for a family for one night at the Family House. In addition to your donation I challenge you to forward this giving opportunity to 4 of your friends to help spread the message of organ donation and increase the support of these families.
Please join us in celebrating Giving Tuesday on December 2 by supporting the hundreds of transplant patients and families who call Gift of Life Family House their "home away from home."
At 8:00 a.m. on December 2, 2014, a big DONATE button will appear to the right of this screen - at which point you can make a much appreciated contribution to Gift of Life Family House and help us reach our goal for 40 Hours for the Family House!
We also welcome you to click the green FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN button on the right to set up your own fundraiser and join the challenge.
