Recycle Yourself |Become An Organ Donor

On World Organ Donation Day – 13 August 2014, Vidya Sury, wrote a very touching post sharing her Mom’s choice to donate her body after her passing. Vidya and her family honored her wishes. Read more about it here. Vidya went on to ask us to write a post on our blogs to spread the message.

Another blogger friend, Kim Sisto Robinson, writes often about how her family chose to donate her sister, Kay’s organs after her gruesome murder at the hands of her husband. The recipients of Kay’s organs join the family in remembering Kay.

I’ve often written about leaving a legacy. Yes, we can leave a legacy by the lives we lead and the choices we make. But what about something after we pass? Live life to the fullest – but we can make our death a meaningful one too.

Recycle yourself. Become an organ donor.

    Thanks for sharing and bringing this to the attention it deserves. As another comment stated, you can’t take it with you and if it will help someone else, why not?

    My driver’s license confirms that I’m an organ donor. If we can’t take it with us, and it’s still able to help others, that is my absolute choice. Thanks, Corinne, for bringing awareness to this cause.
    Love and blessings!

    “Recycle yourself” is a great way to look at it, Corinne! One of my closest friends was an organ recipient and also a donor, so this is something I personally do care about and registered years ago. Glad you have too.
