JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2016 CAMPAIGN

For our January Campaign we would like to partner and support our Board Member, Melissa Heinila, and Donate Life.

Each year almost 3000 families are invited to a Donate Life Remembrance Ceremony to honor a loved one who saved a life (or many lives) through organ donation.

Brian Campbell, brother of one of our members, Melissa Campbell Heinila, is one who will be honored after his tragic death at age 17 resulted in 6 lives being saved through his organ donation. Brian’s family has organized the Rocks for Life event and Kids Who Care and the Infinite Smile Project will join them in painting rocks to create a special gift for each of the donor families as they arrive at the Donate Life Remembrance Ceremony. (Remembrance Ceremony is not part of this event)

OC Ambassadors we welcome you to attend the January 9th event between 9:30-11:30 in Ladera Ranch with ISP and other like-minded charitable kids and adults. If you wish to do some rocks of you own please see below.

Supplies:

  1. Smooth rocks of medium to large size
  2. Paint brushes with fine tips to paint and write on
  3. Paint suitable for smooth rock surfaces (to be found at arts and crafts stores)

How to do this month’s campaign:

  1. Purchase some smooth-surfaced rocks of medium to large size
