I am writing to you today because we have only 6 months left to find a living donor kidney for my husband Gary. Many of you have asked what can you do to help.
Team Gary met on Sunday and we outlined a comprehensive campaign for our final 6 month push to find a donor. Below is a list of many different ways you and your family can help. You can live in any state of the united states and still help. The living donor can live anywhere. Please help. Let us know if you are willing and able to do any of the following:
1. We will launch our You Tube video this Thursday, telling our story. If anyone would like a copy of our video to show at any event or meeting to help spread the word.
2. We have large Sandwich Boards asking for a donor. If anyone would be willing to volunteer their time to walk a high traffic area wearing the sandwich board.
3. We want to advertise on a Billboard. If anyone has contacts with people who own those advertising billboards.
4. If you are affiliated with a Synagogue or a Church, we can provide you with a packet of information to share with your spiritual community. Even if you are not but you would be willing to help us reach out to faith based groups.
5. If you are an Alum of University of Illinois, University of Chicago or Illinois Institute of Technology. We are trying to get the word out to Gary’s three alma maters
6. If you have any contacts with Deerfield H.S., Glenbrook North High School, Glenbrook South High School and have thoughts about how the high school students and their families could help.
7. Spring To Action – Rally and Canvassing Campaign (Share Your Spare Day) will take place in April or May. If you would like to help organize this event. Certainly hope you will all attend.
