Wisconsin resident and graphic designer Shannon Steffen wanted to champion the cause of organ transplants, and thank the selfless acts of organ donors and their families, after her beloved husband received his successful double-lung transplant in November 2004. (He had Cystic Fibrosis. He’s doing well today.) The medium she chose? Graphic design: Shannon runs the Angel Cove Organ Donation Awareness Shop, an online source for tees, stickers, magnets, mugs, license plate frames, ornaments, teddy bears, and much more, all bearing phrases like “ask me about my transplant” and “my daddy gave the gift of life.”
So far, Angel Cove doesn’t offer any merchandise specific to living donors (but I’ve left her a message in hopes we can change that).
