What is tomorrow? For many, it might mean a day of football, or shopping. For me, tomorrow is the “Donor Sabbath”.
What is the “Donor Sabbath”? Instead of me trying to explain it, this is short and to the point ~
The purpose of National Donor Sabbath, a program which is endorsed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is to raise public awareness about transplantation and the critical need for donated organs, eyes and tissues. Most important, this is the perfect time of the year–as the holiday season approaches–to organize donor registry drives that will restore life and hope in the months and years that lie ahead.
For me, beyond the above definition, is it’s another opportunity to give thanks to all of those unknown, anonymous donors that have saved countless lives by their acts of unselfish heroism. My life was saved by such a person. A true hero, to which I try to dedicate my life.
I pray for my donor and my donor’s family every day …….. tomorrow there will be extra thanks involved.
