Holly needs your vote to get organ donation on the telly!
Posted Jan 11 2009 5:25pm
One of our superstar supporters, Holly Shaw, is currently a contender for C4's Battlefront - a campaign with a difference.
The Battlefront site has pages for their favorite 19 campaigners and we want our Holz to be the 20th one picked for a star appearance on their TV series later in the year. Only the campaign with the largest number of votes will get through, so please get busy clicking!
Holly says: "Did you know that 1000 people die every year because of the shortage of organ donors in the UK? In 2005 I went on the kidney transplant waiting list after a sudden illness caused kidney failure. I'm now kept alive by a dialysis machine which I’m attached to 3 times each week. For many others on the waiting list this isn't an option - for them an organ transplant is a matter of life and death. My campaign will raise awareness of organ donation and encourage more people to think, talk and do something about it. As a result, this campaign will save and transform lives, perhaps even my own. Waiting is tough! However I have seen the difference a transplant can make and this gives me hope for the future that I will be able to do the things I have dreamt of." To keep up with Holly and her life on dialysis as she waits for her transplant, check out her excellent blog If you could kindly pop on over to her campaign page http://battlefront.co.uk/campaign/the-gift-of-life/ and show your support with a vote and a little message about what organ donation means to you, that'd be awesome.
You have until 8th October to help get Holly and her campaign for organ donation on the telly!
love to all
*update- Holly's campaign is the most popular- let's keep it that way!
