Living organ donors are some of the most naturally and intuitively generous people I know. Many of us simply don’t give a second thought to the idea of giving. The desire just comes to us like the impulse to breathe, or drink water when we are thirsty.
I found a very fun blog this weekend that I suspect my fellow living donors will enjoy: 2009: A Year of Giving Without Spending. Author Jennifer is posting one idea per day about how to give something to the world without spending money — 365 days of great ideas and inspiration.
Day 66 was “Live Organ Donation” (bless her!) and when I wrote to her this weekend to say thanks for thinking of it, she amended her post to link to our Web site, aw! Thanks, Jennifer! (And thanks for the daily inspiration. You are making a bigger impact than you may realize by spreading your positivity and sharing your gifts.)
