Default Feel good post

Off topic and perhaps wrong section...nonetheless I hang out here more than anywhere else on the forum. This vid covers two of my favorite things baseball cards and kidney donation. It's a feel good story with many positive vibes. http://m.mlb.com/cutfour/2017/07/07/...icle_240989628

Great story, Mike. The 18 year old daughter of some very good friends got a new kidney several years back. I participate a lot in a Pearl Jam forum and, through that, we sold "Hannah Strong" shirts all over the world, raised $7500+ for the family, made a scrapbook of all the people wearing the shirts and had Eddie Vedder dedicate a song to Hannah at a show in Denver. We pulled it all off without the family ever having a clue! Hannah is doing great, these days.
