Alex's support of organ donation

Alex has not only talked about the importance of organ donation in various interviews, as you can see on my page about Three Rivers but about 90% of the rare posts on his official Facebook page are dedicated to organ donation and campaigns to raise awareness and funds for organ donation.

He also became an ambassador for Donate Life while working on "Three Rivers" - and, later on, a spokesperson for the Taylor's Gift Foundation (Update: In Nov. 2018, it was renamed to Outlive Yourself Foundation and then merged with Southwest Transplant Alliance).

Video message from Alex for Organ Donation Day

was a spokesperson of Taylor's Gift Foundation
This great charity was founded by the parents of Taylor - a girl who died in an accident when she was only 13 years old but donated organs to several people. The foundation focuses on creating awareness of the importance of organ donation and it supports individuals and families touched by organ donation. Taylor's Gift became Outlive Yourself Foundation in Nov. 2018 and merged with Southwest Transplant Alliance. As far as we know, Alex stopped being a spokesperson when the merger took place.

In 2014, I wrote a guest blog for Taylor's Gift to inspire other fans to promote organ donation through fansites, too. The link to this blog is also included on my page about the "AOL Fans for Organ Donation" team, so you may have seen it before:
The link no longer works and I don't think I have the text saved anywhere...
