A favor if you will…

donor_heartI would like to ask a huge favor. As you probably know, I recently had a heart transplant. Because of the limitations, I am unable to work and I do not get to collect disability. What does this have to do with you, you ask?

With so much time on my hands, I decided I needed to do something. So I started making jewelry and will be selling it on Etsy. A portion of the proceeds will go to Donate Life America (http://donatelife.net/about-us/). I am unable to offer my organs, but I need to do something in honor of my donor and her family, so this is my task.

Many of you cannot be donors, but you can still help. I never ask for something for nothing, so that is why the jewelry. You donate to the cause and as a special thank you, I send you the piece of jewelry of your choice.

So far I have made about 50 pieces, and am still working. Many are one of a kind and I don’t have the materials to make any more. I would consider it a personal favor if you would help me support organ donor registration. There are too many people whose lives depend on it.

I am in no way affiliated with Donate Life, not do they endorse my support or activity. I have chosen to donate to them because I believe in what they do.
