Every person who sends in his or her plushie for contribution gets a letter back from the “recipient” plushie, expressing gratitude and explaining how the generous act offered it a second chance at life. The aim is to evoke joy among the donors, teaching both kids and their families about the truly life-giving impact of organ transplants.
