Live On. Ride On is a campaign for LifeLine Ohio to help bring awareness for organ donation in the motorcycle enthusiast world. It's a good cause and I've had a link and banner on the blog for a couple of months, now.

Organ donation is a topic a lot of people don't want to talk about. To do so, forces one to acknowledge ones own mortality. And some of us don't do that easily.

The link takes you to the Live On. Ride On web site where you can learn more about them. There's only one thing I don't like about the site. It's a minor thing, really, but I wish they'd change it.
The photo they have on the site is a great shot of a deserted highway snaking into the distance with incredible scenery and vistas on each side. The photograph is quality work. But the road is not in Ohio.

Anyway, Live On. Ride On is going to be at some central Ohio events promoting their cause and I thought I'd share them with you.

I am a great believer in giving back to the world both when we are in it and when we leave it.

It's unfortunate that organ donations and motorcycle riding are connected at this site. People already have that same stereotype in a less honorable way.

Still, though, a great cause! I'm just being sensitive.
