#fortheloveofotis
Last Mother's Day would have been Otis Case’s second birthday. As it approached, Sarah Case was navigating the terrible first steps of grief after the recent loss of her precious son. Wondering how she could possibly cope, Sarah thought about the joy Otis brought to others and his amazing gifts of organ and tissue donation.

She decided to ask friends to share their own acts of kindness and post on social media with #fortheloveofotis. To her surprise, the love spread to every continent around the world, inspiring thousands to share kindness in all sorts of ways.

Team #fortheloveofotis will gather at Tabor Trot to walk in memory of Otis, and their fundraising efforts are inspiring more gifts of kindness to bring hope to those who wait.


If you haven't registered and set up your fundraiser, visit tabortrot.com. Volunteers are also needed to work at the event; contact Aimee Adelmann at adelmaai@ohsu.edu to learn about available roles.
Each Donate Life Northwest raffle ticket gives a chance to win one of five fabulous prize packages, and brings hope to some 3,000 area children and adults waiting for their chance to receive the gift of life. Get your raffle tickets at donatelifenw.org/raffle and tell your friends!
