I mentioned yesterday that my friend Cam had something new for us to join in with. If you haven't been over and checked it out please do. It's something worth taking a minute for.  You might even save a life by increasing awareness about this important issue.

What’s your take on or experience with organ donation, and why did you choose to take part in the FilmLife Blogger Challenge?

Getting to know my friend CurlyPops has given me first hand insight into the importance of organ donation.  I've been signed up to be an organ donor for a long time but now that I have a good friend waiting for a transplant I get it on a whole different level.

If you were to donate your organs, which one would you love to donate, and why?(nb. this question is intentionally quirky so feel free to be creative and have some fun with it)

I've got ex-smoker's lungs, a crap bladder, a dodgy stomach and haven't exactly treated my body like a temple, but hey, you're welcome to whatever you need.  Except my eyes.  I decided when I first became an organ donor that I'd hang on to my eyes so I can find my way in the afterlife.

Who in your family would you need to talk to about organ donation, to be sure your loved ones knew your wishes? 

My peeps know my wishes {including the quirky thing about hanging on to my eyes} so I'm all set.

If you join in with the challenge make sure you sign up on Cam's blog so we can check out your response.  You can read more about The Filmlife Project here
