"Driving For Life Campaign" A 48 State Life Saving Mission

(THE CHEVROLET VOLT Hybrid I Am Driving)

Kidneys For Kids is a 5013c Non-Profit -EIN 88-2341457 ( More Information at
Why must I complete this life-saving mission in 2023 you ask? Here is a quote of actual figures from Dr. Frank McCormick P.H.D.-regarding people with end-stage renal failure:
"Thus, half of the 126,000 patients who are currently diagnosed with ESRD each year—63,000 patients—might medically benefit from a transplant. However, if only 20,000 patients per year receive a transplant, the remaining 43,000 would join the growing toll of those who die prematurely because of the kidney shortage. To put this in perspective, this is the same death toll as from 85 fully loaded 747s crashing each year". see more...

Those figures include children to a degree, and it is my mission in 2023 to see that a minimum of 100 children's lives are saved because 100 adults like myself came forward and donated their spare kidney to save a child.

How can you Participate?

Make A Donation: Segment #1 The West- I have now visited with families in Cincinnati, St.Louis, Jackson, Mississippi, Houston, Austin, and Dallas. I will begin a 20 city tour of the east coast on July 10th. All contributions, no matter how big or small, will help me reach my goal of traveling to 30 states and over 12,000 miles, to make a difference in the lives of those children.

Share the campaign: Share this campaign with your friends and family, and your social media networks to help us raise a larger audience and reach our goal.

Join The Journey: If you live in one of the 30 states I will travel to, join me on the road to help spread awareness of the critical need for more living kidney donors.

How I Will Help To Save 100 Children's Lives: By traveling to 30 states and traveling over 12,000 miles using an Chevrolet Hybird vehicle.
By holding a minimum of 50 Tv interviews with families whose child needs a kidney transplant. By holding events at each stop, to engage the local community, to share our message with them. By documenting my journey and sharing regular updates on social media, to keep all of our supporters engaged. By presenting actual figures in those interviews, which most adults cannot fathom of how many kids need a kidney today, how many are in kidney failure, and how many we lose each year. By showing myself, a man at 61 years of age. who carries on a fulfilling life with one kidney- the same life I had when I had 2 kidneys over 10 years ago. By letting adults know that if they have been blessed with good health, they can share that health and wonderful life with a sick child, and save that child's life. By putting stories like this one of Cooper Pfaff in front of adults

and Magnolia Maglosky-

all over America!
By sharing my story of giving life over 10 years ago, and the rewards I receive every day because of it. By letting adults know it is safe to become a living donor hero, and that more than likely you will outlive the average American male or female after becoming a donor.
Target Audience: People like you who care about the well-being of children, and are passionate like me about making a difference.
The funds raised through this campaign can make this mission a reality, and bring hope to children and their families in all 48 states I travel to.
Together, we can make a difference, and give these children a second chance at life! Make your donation today, and help bring new life to a child!
Thank you! Brian Martindale- Kidneys For Kids
