I saw this on the news and it made me cry.  It’s a great story about an organ recipient who has paid it forward in a wonderful way. In 2008 Michael Carraway’s liver failed and he became critically ill. Shortly after that, he received a liver from a young man who died in a motorcycle accident.

After he recovered, Michael wanted to give something to the community and at the same time honor his donor’s memory. To that end, he told his mom he wanted to feed the homeless. So Mikey and his family have helped provide meals to the homeless in Oakland CA ever since. They also provide gift bags with essentials like socks and toiletries. Mikey has participated in every meal distribution since the beginning. Michael is a CNN heroWhat a generous young man and mature beyond his 13 years!

Mikey’s Meals also raises awareness about organ donation and they have signed up many donors. To find out more and to donate to Mikey’s meals go to: http://www.mikeysmeals.org/
