Living kidney donor's company supports Michigan camp for organ transplant kids

I'm always ready to support initiatives such as Karma Inc. Apparel's to help transplant kids and I am especially happy to praise Brian Martindale's decision to be a living kidney donor. The following is a note I received from Brian.
       I am writing you both in hopes of trading links,and getting our story of support out. First, I am donating a Kidney in the coming months at the University of Michigan Transplant Center. They have a Camp for Kids with Organ Transplants-Camp Michitanki. Up to 100 kids attend every year wheather they are able to pay or not,and their medical needs are taken care of there. And they get to spend some normal time as a kid outdoors.

      Our company, Karma Inc Apparel, created a special design for their camp, called "Guilty of Caring", in Mens and Womens shirts. We donate $10.00 for every sale of this design thru May 15th,and 10% of all other sales. We are looking for links,and short mentions to help us get to 5000 sales, so we may donate $50,000 at the end. We are also hosting a benefit Concert and Bowling Benefit May 6th and 7th. NOTE: as of 4/25/11 the following link has been disabled Go to to view what we do. I am enclosing a pic of shirt. Thanks for all you do, Brian Martindale

Has your life been saved by an organ transplant? "Pay it forward" and help spread the word about the need for organ donation - In the U.S. another person is added to the national transplant waiting list every 11 minutes and 18 people die each day waiting for an organ or tissue transplant. Organs can save lives, corneas renew vision, and tissue may help to restore someone's ability to walk, run or move freely without pain. Life Begins with You
