the filmlife project - blogger's challenge.

i'm a little slow to jump on this boat, but i guess it's never too late! i'm definitely not one to make any kind of film so i thought i'd play along by answering a few quick and easy questions.
read all about it here!

1. What’s your take on or experience with organ donation, and why did you choose to take part in the FilmLife Blogger Challenge?
i don't have any first hand experience with organ donation, but i couldn't really understand why you'd not be an organ donor. it's the easiest thing you'd personally have to do, to completely change someone's life! it doesn't cost you a cent, it doesn't cause you any pain and it's not anything you'll miss!
i chose to take part to spread the word! i've gotten to know a lovely lady, whose life will completely change due to someone being signed up as an organ donor. it'll mean she's around for a lot longer, as well as living a heck of a lot easier! pretty cool!

2. If you were to donate your organs, which one would you love to donate, and why?
i'd love to donate my corneas, imagine having your vision restored after not being able to see for goodness knows how long! it would be amazing!

3. Who in your family would you need to talk to about organ donation, to be sure your loved ones knew your wishes?
organ donation (as well as many other much more grisly topics...) was something that was always talked about at our dinner table growing up due to my mum being a nurse. the 'you can't take them with you' sentiment definitely runs in the family and as far as i know we're all signed up on the national registry (you can sign up here).

the lovely curlypops is having a bit of a blogalong with these questions. if you want to answer them too, pop over and put your link in too.
oh and tweet your blogpost with the hashtag #filmlifeproject to join in the fun :D

Awww thanks so much for joining in Nicole. I didn't know that your mum was a nurse! That would certainly help in discussions around the dinner table.
