How a T-shirt, Disney World and social media saved a life

I wanted to share an extended Daily Dose of Kindness on the radio today because our network, CBS, has a series called “A More Perfect Union” where they share stories that show what unites us as Americans is far greater than what divides us.

In today’s story, reporter Don Dahler shares how a T-shirt, a trip to Disney World, and a viral social media post brought two fathers together for a life-saving operation.

It’s worth a watch if you have three minutes.

SPOILER ALERT: It has to do with a living kidney donation. I’m sharing that here now because I’ve covered stories of living kidney donations before and have found that most people aren’t aware that you can go on to live a normal, healthy life with one kidney.

I know three people who’ve given one of their kidneys to strangers and are walking around today like nothing happened.

You can hear Colleen O’Brien’s “Daily Dose of Kindness” segment every morning at 7:30 a.m. on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM.
