but I only need one.
Reasons why: save a life, help a stranger, take random-acts-of-kindness to another level
Reasons why not: I have a lot of kids.Â Dr. Hank (aka Grandpa Hank) thinks it would be wise of me to save a kidney for one of my kids– just in case.
So I won’t be donating.Â But I so very very much wish I could. Watch this ABC video clip to catch true kindness in action.Â I wish I could participate.
People are so beautiful and kind.
The Kidney Chronicles is an amazing story-blog of guy who donated his kidney to a stranger. I am inspired by this guy. He is a true hero.Â His next journey is to donate bone marrow to a 13 year old boy who is dying of leukemia. And guess what???? Dr. Hank says it’s OKAY for me to donate marrow. YES! I can help! I’m fearful of the pain involved… but I figure it can’t be any worse than unmedicated childbirth.
I challenge YOU to think about giving in an unbelievable way.Â God calls each of us to be kind, generous and outrageously generous. What’s your way? I have not found my ULTIMATE way yet, but when I do my heart will sing!
Darn it on the kidney thing.Â Darn it.

I really enjoyed this article:Â Here’s looking at you, Kidney.
This donation chain has lead to 10 kidney transplants:Â CNN Health
Just added: My dad and his girl-friend are going to join me on the marrow journey! I’m so thrilled.Â Let me know if you do too… I wonder how many lives we can save?
