To the Editor:

Don’t you just love to read good news in the paper? That’s exactly what the story “Donor’s gift an 'act of love’” was — a truly inspirational story about a child needing a kidney and a woman with enough love in her heart to donate one.

Evie is a sweet child with an incredible understanding of life and love. She is wise beyond her years. I feel truly blessed to know Evie and Jenn. Beyond donating a kidney, there is so much we can do for Evie and kids just like her. We can like her Facebook page www.facebook.com/kidneyforevie, we can donate to COTA in honor of Evie W (www.COTAforEvieW.com), we can donate blood, we can register to be an organ donor, or we can volunteer to be on Evie’s team (kidneyforevie@gmail.com).

This month, a beautiful child will receive a rich blessing — the gift of life. Let each of us find some way to help Evie or help someone like Evie. It will be amazing what we can do if we all work together.
