Happy Birthday, Being Resourceful! April 24, 2010

Today is Being Resourceful’s first birthday! Many, many thanks to all of our readers, and especially to those who gave me the swift kick in the pants it took for me to get this started. I am so happy and thankful to be able to share with you the great deals I find, and, more importantly, to honor the memory of my dad by spreading the word about organ and tissue donation. I miss you, Daddy.


Why do I do this? December 8, 2009

Yes, keeping this site stocked with the best of the daily deals out there is a lot of work. And, no, this is not a business. There is no paid product placement or advertising. I don’t benefit personally from this project one bit.

So, why do I spend all this time writing Being Resourceful? My dad. I love him. I miss him. I wish I could have him back.

My dad benefited from a heart valve transplant and a partial aorta transplant, but didn’t live long enough to receive a heart transplant. He went to Heaven at the very young age of 62.

The ULTIMATE in resourcefulness is sharing your self — your tissues and organs when you no longer need them. Please talk about this with your family. Consider officially registering as a tissue and/or organ donor. Encourage your family and friends to do the same. Leave your tissues and/or organs here. Heaven doesn’t need them; someone here does. You could save someone’s life.

Please visit the national organ/tissue donor site, Donate Life, at to learn more.

I thank YOU from the bottom of MY heart (which will definitely be donated someday if I’m ever in the position).
