A while ago I became aware of a nail polish by OPI called Taylor Blue, it was a limited edition color that caught my eye. I looked up the name of the polish because I wanted to purchase it, and I found TaylorsGift.org.
I came to learn that OPI had partnered with the Taylor’s Gift Foundation to create an exclusive nail polish named “Taylor Blue”. The Foundation has a mission to increase official organ donor registries in the US. This is a cause I feel strongly for myself (I’ve been a registered organ donor since the day I turned 18), and I wanted to share it with you. Here is what the website says about Taylor;
“Taylor lived her life with joy and brought happiness to all who knew her. The world lost a vibrant and gifted young person on March 15, 2010, when a tragic skiing accident changed everything for the Storch family while vacationing in Colorado. After Taylor’s parents were told that Taylor would not survive, they made a choice—a prayerful choice they knew their daughter would want.
Taylor’s organs went to a number of different people in need: her heart to a 39-year-old mother of two in Arizona; her pancreas and one kidney to a 49-year-old husband and father in Colorado; her other kidney to a 33-year-old man in Colorado; her corneas and liver changed two other lives in other parts of the country. Taylor’s Gift Foundation was created to honor Taylor’s many talents and gifts, and especially her ultimate gift: life for others.”
