The Gift of Life - Donor Awareness

Lib at Lib's Private Paradise shared this. Gill at That British Woman shared it with her.

This is how this award originated: Crystal at Memoirs Of A Mommy created this award in honor of the donor who saved Noah's life. Noah is her son, and he had a heart transplant when he wasn't even a month old. This dear little boy just celebrated his first birthday earlier this month!! Her hopes are that in passing this award around, we will create more awareness of the importance of organ donation.

The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog. All I ask is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same.

If you are reading this, PLEASE take it to your blog and keep it going. We can help save lives by making more people aware of the importance of organ donation. Just one look at this precious little face should be all it takes!!! This little boy lives today, thanks to the gift of life from another mother during her own time of grief.

I'll try to get it on next week, please remind me if I don't. It is a worthwhile cause (i'm a registered organ donor as is the hubs). Wow what a lot to go through at such a tender age...

Merle said...

Dear Nancy ~~ Great idea about a really good cause. Thank you for all your comments and I am glad you enjoy reading Olive's blog. She was a very
colorful lady with a terrific memory.
Glad you found more smiles at my place. Wow 102 F is really hot, so I can understand you waiting for Fall.
Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Nicely processed, and the issue is so contribute organ is very, very important precisely because in this way we give others the ability to live. a beautiful greeting Steven May

What a cutie!!!!! I could just hug him!!! I am an organ donor too also am on the national list for those that might need my blood type. I feel it would be an honor to be able to donate my bonemarrow and give someone else the gift of life! I will post this on my sidebar as I truly believe it helps promote awareness.
It's very humid again today with threats of thunder showers up until the middle of next week. At least we have had so much rain that the fire danger is down a bit.
Little stray kitty is out on the deck having her breakfast. Dad fed her and then when I went out and saw her I took her out more and she has eaten the whole thing! Now yesterday she didn't show up all day so I was wondering where she might be. I tried to pat her this morning and she didn't like it at all and gave me the look that said keep your hands off me!!!! She didn't run away but backed up out of my reach. I guess it was too soon to try. I so much want to pick her up and love her but I guess it's going to take time. I just hope we make progress before winter as I don't want her out in the cold. She could go in the barn in the hay and be warm but that's not much of a life by herself. Oh well, time will tell!
I'm going riding this morning with my friend Ann. We won't do much as it is so muggy and her horse has breathing issues, we used to call it the heaves but now they say ocpd or something like that. He is very old, older then Buddy.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Hi Nancy...I saw your comment you left in another blog friend of yours and wanted to stop by and say "Hi, nice to meet you".

Isn't he a precious babe? Our grandson had open heart surgery at the age of 5 months and it's something that humbles us all to know just how precious life is.

Have a great weekend.

What a beautiful child! He is just adorable. I would squeeze those cheeks in a minute! LOL

Organ donation is so very important. Steve and I say take what you need from us. Give someone else a chance at life.
