Innocent Words Magazine Hosts DVD Drive for Pediatric/Adult Organ Transplant;

Many organizations claim to “give back.” With Innocent Words Magazine it’s a mission that underscores the publications’ overall philosophy.

Founder Troy Michael has a special understanding and empathy for those facing certain life events. His connection to the pediatric and adult organ transplant departments at Riley Hospital for Children and Indiana University Hospital runs deep. As a child, Troy needed a kidney transplant and the hospitals were there for him. Although young, he vowed to give back to the hospital which saved his life.

And that vow has become a priority for Troy and those associated with the independent music publication he started in 2001. Knowing how boring it can be stuck in a hospital bed, Troy has raised money and/or donated books, art supplies and music to the transplant ward at the hospitals all with a simple goal of putting a smile on someone’s face and making their hospital stay a little more tolerable.

This year, Troy and Innocent Words Magazine are hosting a DVD Drive for the pediatric and adult transplant patients at Riley Hospital for Children and Indiana University Hospital.

In January a new addition to Riley Hospital will open with large private patient rooms. Organ Transplant will have its own unit in this new building. The DVDs will be very helpful in growing the video collection.

Here’s what’s needed:

DVD movies, documentries, music videos, etc. for kids and/or adults. Please no sexual content or graphic material. The movies should be in their cases. Gently used DVDs are fine. Newly released movies are a bonus.

Please look in your entertainment collection, look in the sale bins at your local stores and consider donating your DVDs to this worthwhile project.

The DVD Drive will be ongoing through December 15, 2010.

Thank you for your time and support. If you have any questions please email
