Disney’s “Shout Out” to Donation
My six-year-old daughter LOVES all of the Disney shows aimed at tweens. One of them is “Shake It Up,” about two girls who dance on a kids’ TV show. Normally, I would make up a million excuses to avoid sitting through one of these shows, but a few days ago, I didn’t.
I was pleasantly surprised at that little “shout out” for the importance of organ and tissue donation and even happier that no myths were perpetuated, as often happens in hollywood.
I’d like to thank the writers at Disney for including donation in this show. If that mention of donation affects one other parent or helps a child see how important donors are, it made a difference.
