City Daily Photo Theme 'kindness'..

 

 I must admit I was in a bit of a quandary as to how to capture an image depicting 'kindness', the November theme for City Daily Photo bloggers. The answer, a particularly personal one, came in the form of the brand new sculpture at City Beach by local artist Simon Youngleson. Commissioned by Donate Life as part of their wider social media awareness campaign designed to encourage community discussion around organ and tissue donation. The artist hopes that 'as people interact with the sculpture it will remind us to celebrate life and reflect on the selfless generosity of organ and tissue donors'. Several years ago my younger sister was in need of a kidney transplant, thankfully her husband was a match and although most Australians support organ donation only 1 in 3 are registered organ donors, it's one of those difficult conversations that we don't have but really should. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  1. I´m a donor since... 10 years or such (Ingo as well) and no one ever needed any of us (speaking of bone marrow). Good on your family-match!!!

    But with kindness, you sure hit the jackpot, Grace, giving me the most biggest smile of the weekend!! ����
    Sooo...ooooo looking forward to sexy men (and women (for Ingo)) and kindness to Perth´s Children - maybe you can make the sexy guys make contact to feuerwehr@braunschweig.de and they ask them to follow this example?
    Awww, Grace! My smile hurts my face and Ingo just grinned the biggest! xoxo

  7. Dearest Grace,
    Yes, for quite a while we both have that information on our diver's license. It IS important!
    We know a person who received a donor liver and also a girl that lived for several years with a donor lung...
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  9. Hi Grace, I notice you did not share your theme post on the CDP theme day page. Most likely because the page moved this month. The current page address is https://www.citydailyphoto.org/category/theme-days/

  10. The first looks great with the tree backdrop. I am a registered donor and everyone knows it. The sister of our friend who had a heart transplant has just had a kidney transplant after two year of dialysis. Tragic that they were both saved by young men killed in car crashes, but saved they were.

  20. Really nice sculpture. Here there's a box to fill out when you get a driver's license for if you want to be an organ donor. I signed up but I hope I don't pass on my allergies to a patient that way. There are so many of them; it is a real problem planning meals.

  21. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
