Our son (61/2) donated his corneas. He loved to read! Comforting to know that perhaps someone is reading because of his belief in donation! Yes....he was a supporter. We had talked about it when he turned 6 and there was a program on about organ/tissue donation! He truly understood and could not figure out why anyone wouldn't donate!

I feel that donating to this non-profit was an excellent choice. I know that the Michigan Eye-Bank makes such a difference in the lives of so many people. This organization was able to provide the gift of sight to nearly 1,000 Michigan residents last year alone. But they don't stop there, they also provide tissue all across the United States and even Internationally, improving lives worldwide! What a wonderful cause to donate to!
