A New Jersey mother and her daughter continue to give thanks this holiday season, and know first-hand the power of organ and tissue donation. Reenie Harris, a new volunteer with NJ Sharing Network, and her daughter, Natasha Kruse, both gave the gift of life to perfect strangers when they each became living kidney donors. Reenie also became the oldest living altruistic kidney donor in New Jersey at age 70. Mother and daughter spent part of the Thanksgiving holiday together sharing their amazing story with The Star-Ledger. Check out this amazing front-page news story.
The second weekend in November kicked off National Donor Sabbath, a special time of year when clergy and their congregations come together to increase awareness about the life-saving gift of organ and tissue donation. NJ Sharing Network works year-round to educate New Jersey residents about the critical need for more organ and tissue donors.
Religious leaders around the state are encouraged to address the importance of registering to be an organ and tissue donor. Many faith leaders also recognize that there are members within their own congregations who have been touched by donation or are in need of a life-saving transplant.
We invite you to download our Faith-Based Resource Kit to help raise awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation in your house of worship.
