On December 6, the German Alex O'Loughlin Fan Club celebrates its one-year-anniversary - and sends a gift to Donate Life, honoring Donate Life ambassador Alex O'Loughlin.
Portraying brilliant heart transplant surgeon Dr. Andy Yablonski in his CBS series THREE RIVERS, Alex O'Loughlin decided to become not only a spokesperson, but also an ambassador for the organ donation organization Donate Life America.
Deeply impressed by Alex O'Loughlin's support of organ donation, the German fan club launched a campaign which raises organ donation awareness, provides information about local organ donation organizations and about how and where to register as an organ donor. This campaign goes on indefinitely. Also, members of the fan club, Tinker (AnnHart) and Petralisa, regularly contribute articles and images to the "Alex O'Loughlin Fans for Donate Life"-Blog.
On its birthday, however, the German Alex O'Loughlin Fan Club plans something special, a Christmas gift to say how thankful the members are to him for bringing so much joy into their lives with his excellent work, be it as an actor or as a supporter of great causes: The fan club will make financial contributions directly to Donate Life America in
Alex O'Loughlin's honor. "We want to support Alex as ambassador for Donate Life," says Silke. "Because organ donation is such a very important subject. We live in Germany, but we want to send our financial contributions directly to Donate Life - to show what a great impact Alex's work for Donate Life makes worldwide." She continues: "Because Alex portrays a heart transplant surgeon, he does a wonderful job at conveying how difficult it is for donors, recipients and doctors to deal with situations where the stakes are so high. Alex definitely started a whole new awareness for organ donation."
Silke became a registered organ donor and continuously wants to raise greater awareness for organ donation.
