Increasing awareness

Dear Editor:My name is Win K. Charles. I am 18 years old and I am writing this letter to bring up something that’s near to my heart: that’s Organ Donor Awareness Day, which is Feb. 14. The reason I am bringing up Organ Donor Awareness Day is because I feel people in Aspen don’t take it seriously enough.Organ Donor Awareness Day is not to get people to give their life up. It is just to get people informed that there’s a need for organ donors. Aspen has a local family – the Klug family – who has seen the power of the gift of life. They almost lost a loved one, if it was not for a life-saving organ.I’m an organ donor myself. My wish is just for people to think about organ donation.Win K. CharlesAspen
