Let’s be honest. You’re inbox has been blowing up with messages from your favorite charities about #GivingTuesday. Each hoping that you’ll make a financial donation to kick off the giving season. Here’s a secret. You can give an amazing donation this holiday season- and it wont’ cost you a dime.

Registering to become an organ donor online will give the gift of life one day to patients waiting on the national transplant waiting list. Currently, there are over 120,000 men, women and children who are waiting for a second chance of life. Kids like my dear buddy Weston, who received a heart and double lung transplant last December from his selfless donor. Because of donation, Weston was given additional time with his family before passing away earlier this year. For most of his life, Weston was listed on the transplant waiting list, and was a huge advocate for organ donation. In his honor, his mom Julie is encouraging people to register as organ donors on #GivingTuesday. It’s the ultimate gift of charity, it’s giving the gift of life to a family that is running out of time.
