Little kid. Big heart.

organ donationIn China an 11-year-old boy, Liang Yaoyi, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. When it became clear that he would not survive the condition he asked that his organs be donated so that he could help others.

"There are many people doing great things in the world," he said according to China Daily. "They are great, and I want to be a great kid too." He said that it was a chance for him to be "alive in another way."

The touching picture you see above are the attending surgeons honoring him shortly after his death. (Click it for a larger version.)

How about you? Are you part of the organ donation program? Do you give blood? Are you in the bone marrow registry? Do you want to help others? It seems a shame to commit perfectly good organs to the grave when so many people would benefit from our final act of generosity.

I realize that there are a great many concerns about organ donation so I encourage you to read the Mayo Clinic's list of myths for yourself.


The Great Patreon Gran Prix is now in the pits and, as I'd hoped, everyone was a winner!

To be honest, readers of Ragin Pencils didn't exactly trample one another in a virtual stampede for the Pledge button but I yet received a hefty double handful of continuing support, and to those kind folks I
offer the most grateful of thanks.

I shan't actively harangue readers for alms any longer but I'll continue to host a not-to-horribly-obnoxious Patreon button on the site for those who just take a little longer to be convinced.

This is little Billy. Tonight he'll go hungry because someone donated their organs for transplantation. So, please, before you sign that donor card, think of the little worms... like Billy. This message brought to you by Save the Annelids.
