Live On NY is holding it’s 4th annual Organ Donor Enrollment Day. the theme is Unleash Your Inner Hero. Indeed, I am unleashing my inner hero, although with a great deal of humility and a commitment to improving other people’s lives who have a need greater than any that I have.
I found a great spot, too! Berkeley Drugs on the corner of Kings Highway and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn has been a mainstay in the community I grew up in. As a kid, I used to go there, sometimes with my grandma to pick up prescriptions. I bought holiday and birthday cards there for my loved ones with my saved up money. When I played sports in high school I went there for Ace bandages and ice packs, and at age sixteen, in an exasperated attempt to do away with excess fat for once and for all, I bought weight loss shake mix there.
Having a chance to actually go back to my community to do some good work – raise awareness about organ donation and get people signed up to help close the gap – is exciting! I plan to also go to my elementary school to visit and bring sign up forms and a poster so faculty and staff there can get on the list as well. If you cannot come in person, click here to sign up online as a donor.
Please reach out to volunteer, a few hours or all day, or to support in any other way. If you’d like to help out with some money, you can fund my PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
