Some of you may have seen recently a commercial from Donate Life Ohio. They feature transplant recipients who tell their story and thank the donor who saved their life. These ads are just great...way better than the slew of commercials you see featuring the latest medicine, mattress sale or SVU series. These are all designed to raise awareness of the need for organ donation.
Last summer I was honored to be asked to write the theme song for the Transplant Games of America, held in Cleveland (this year in Salt Lake City, Utah). My song, "Here I Am" will continue to be used by the Transplant Games of America and we have also pitched the song to Donate Life Ohio. Please consider becoming an organ donor!
Mailing list members enjoy your free download of "Here I Am" in this morning's email. And share with your friends and family.
See you soon. Stay warm!
