Check out the trailer for a NEW local film “The Wish” funded by Donate Life America. The purpose of the film is to bring awareness to the urgent need for minorities to be organ and tissue donors. I’m excited about this project because there isn’t a huge awareness in our neighborhood and this film is a GREAT way to spread the word.
I’m also happy to see my soror and friend Reece Odom living her dreams with the lead role!
Written and directed by film maker Ty Manns of CME Films, starring Reece Odum (Lesson Before Love), Blue Kimble (The Game & Being Mary Jane), Patrick Faucette (The Haves and Have Nots), Nate Jones (The Itch), Roz Williams (The Turning Point) and introducing Amanda Granville and Russell Scott.
Stay tuned for more updates on the film! In the meantime… here’s a piece of information about a minority awareness program I found online:
National Minority Donor Awareness Week
Observed annually, National Minority Donor Awareness Week was created to increase awareness of the need for more organ, eye, and tissue donors, especially among minorities. Now in its 18th year, this special observance honors minorities who have been donors, and encourages others to register as donors and take better care of their health in order to reduce the number needing a transplant.
