Nov. 24, 2016 — Giving thanks

During this season, a story emerged about a member of the field hockey family whose life was saved, thanks to an organ donor.

Here’s the story and a video about how the heart of a Towson University student wound up in Pennsylvania, giving the father of wunderkind Mackenzie Allessie a second life.

Organ donation is easy; sometimes it is as easy as renewing your driver’s license. And you never know the impact you might have on someone else’s life. Indeed, when your Founder was an intern with New Jersey state government, he met a woman who had received the corneas of the late Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Pelle Lindbergh, giving her the gift of sight.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.
