Focus on life - Pentax and Organ Donation

Recently I was lucky enough to have saved enough to buy a Pentax K100D. It is great and I'm really pleased that I can still use my old K-mount lenses.

What suprised me most about the camera was that inside there was a leaflet called "Focus on Life", which was an invitation to join the NHS Organ Donation Register.

I'm assuming that it was Pentax that have decided to support this excellent scheme rather than Curry's Digital, where I bought the camera.

What a great idea and well done Pentax! How much effort is it to include such flyers for good causes inside the packaging for products? Of course, not much at all so why don't more companies do this?

An amazing statistic is that when asked, 90% of people say they support organ donation, but only 22% have registered their wishes.

I've been on the NHS Organ Donor Register for years and carry a Donor card. My family also know my wishes.

It's not morbid and don't put this off.

Register now and do an amazing posthumous act when the time comes, make sure you give someone, if not several people the gift of life. How fantastic!
