From today, you will be able to buy the single ’15 days of Christmas’.
The song is written by Sarah Milne whose son William is desperately waiting for a transplant and inspired by Lottie, the youngest baby in the world to survive a liver transplant. Lottie was born prematurely and had just fifteen days to live unless she received a transplant.
The song is written from the perspective of a Transplant recipient who has received the Gift of Life from an Organ Donor.
All proceeds raised from this song will go towards raising awareness of the the need for more people to sign the organ donation register, to prevent three people a day dying due to the shortage of organ donors.
The song is available to download for just 79p from www.themusicmillrecords.co.uk. Buy if for yourself, buy it for someone else – what a great gift!
The people of South Devon will not need much of an introduction to ‘Bright Green Star Man’. We have been following him since the first green stars went up on the Torbay ‘pineapple’ in June. As stars began to appear across Torbay, we were told:
“Bright Green Stars for 15 days, but why the colour, why the shape and why is it in the bay?”
And on 9th July, after 15 days, we found out the significance of the 15 days and heard Lottie’s story: http://wearesouthdevon.com/bright-green-stars-revealed/
As many of you know, the Green Star family very sadly lost their son Daniel following a car accident last month.
Daniel was an organ donor and gave hope and life to 6 people.
