It is World Kidney Day, and I know this is unrelated to what I normally post about, but this is a cause that is very close to my heart. Someone in our family deals with Kidney disease everyday and as a family we are all along for the ride, trying to make the best of the situation and to support them as best as we can. There are loads of things as bloggers we can do to help this situation and if you go to any of these links, there is info on how to sign up and get involved.
Many people don't realise how important these two little organs are, without them you can't live. They make hormones for all sorts of things in your body, blood, heart, blood pressure...etc, etc as well as being the filters of your bodies. This is why it is so important to look after them, as trying to get new ones is very, very hard...we know.
So please, please talk with your family members about signing up as organ donors and if you can spare some dollars, donate to your countries body of the Kidney Foundation.
It would mean a great deal to so many.
