Today I have taken the first step in the evolution of Chopped Liver as an ongoing site to promote the greater good. At right, I have posted a small icon that links to Strengthen the Good, the inspiring creation of Alan Nelson, a frequent commentor on this site and one of my personal heroes. Alan, the genius behind Seat 1A(not to mention scores of corporate communication strategy success stories), created Strengthen the Good to unleash the power of bloggers to make measurable, meaningful impact on community-based social causes. In his words:
STG is the nexus of a network of bloggers committed to raising awareness for small charities around the world. Every so often this space highlights a new “micro-charity”—a small, inspiring charity, one with a real face and where $1 makes a difference—and the bloggers in the network link to that post, sending traffic, and awareness, the charity’s way.
In January 2006 I successfully donated half my liver to my brother, Joe. This blog began in November 2005, when I was just a hopeful donor candidate, and continues today as a vehicle for sharing my experience and building community among past, current, and would-be live organ donors and transplant recipients. Thank you for stopping by. All content on this blog, including images and text unless otherwise cited, is copyright (c) 2005-2007, Becky Waller. All rights reserved.
In 2007 I founded the Greatest Gift Foundation, which provides information and support to living organ donors throughout their transplant experience. I'm in Minneapolis, when I'm not traveling the country meeting with transplant teams. Contact us at email@example.com.
