GINTA – Just give and the rest will take care of itself

A YEAR AGO, a horrible bus crash claimed 16 lives and left 13 others with lifelong injuries and trauma; their loved ones and so many people across the country still carry the heartbreak with them.

Humboldt Bronco defenceman Logan Boulet was among those who died. His life ended too soon but he left with giving the gift of life as his parents honoured his wish to be an organ donor. The lives of six people changed forever for the better and so did the lives of those who love them.

The ripples of such a gift will keep on giving and will be felt for a long time. The Logan Boulet Effect will continue through our remembrance of his generosity and by observing Green Shirt Day every year on April 7. Here’s to hoping that many of us learning about it and donning a green shirt on, will also register to be an organ donor.

Last week, the small Sikh community in Clearwater donated $164,000 to local charities after they sold the temple.
