Kidneydonormatch.org was born out of the belief that we are to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Matthew 22:37-38 says “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’. This includes everyone. Not just our friends or family but strangers.
We are passionate about helping others find their live-saving kidney donor while educating others on living kidney donation. Our purpose is vital as there are over 100,000 people waiting right now on a life-saving kidney yet nowhere for them to go to tell their personal story of kidney failure to be matched with potential donors.
As a species, we are addicted to stories and we were designed that way from the beginning. Jesus often spoke in parables. When we hear a story, our levels of oxytocin increase, motivating us and boosting feelings of compassion and empathy. Stories have a unique ability to build connections and that’s what we aim to do through kidneydonormatch.org.
