BEWARE!!! Potential Organ Scam


 

I have received several emails from an organization called Donate-For-Life that cause me some concern.  They ask for money but give absolutely no details on what they do or how.  See for yourself by clicking on http://www.donate-for-life.com/index.html

 

Here is the first paragraph on their website,  

 

“Proprietary Concept


Note: The exact working details are a trade secret; however, the program is completely lawful and will not harm persons in third world countries.

 

 

The working details are a trade secret?  A trade secret?  But not to worry, they will take your money anyway.  What kind of fools do they think we are?  Please, readers, do not send money to any organization that does not explain in detail what it does.  The claims this group makes are outrageously wild and there is not a single shred of evidence to back them up.

 

It is a fact of life that there are vultures in our society with the nerve to prey on millions of wonderful altruistic people and on the thousands of patients who live daily with the fear of dying?  I am not saying Donate-For-Life is a fraud, but the initial smell test sure does leave them suspect. I will keep checking on this one, let us know what you find out, too.

About Bob Aronson

Bob Aronson is a former journalist, a Minnesota Governor's Press Secretary and talk show host. For nearly a quarter of a century, he led the Aronson Partnership, a Minnesota-based communications consultancy that prepared corporate and government executives for crisis situations, regulatory testimony, media interviews and Presentations. Among his clients were all three U.S. Mayo Clinic locations, 3M, general Mills, CH2M Hill, the U.S. Department of Energy and scores more. In 2007 bob had a heart transplant after suffering from idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy for 12 years. Shortly after he got his new heart he founded the now 4,300 member Facebook support group, Organ Transplant Initiative. At the same time, he established the Bob's Newheart blog where he has posted nearly 300 columns on organ donation, transplantation and other health related issues. The Viewpoint blog was started in late 2016 and bears the name of the Radio Talk show Bob did from 1966 until 1974, when he resigned to become Minnesota Governor Rudy Perpich first Press secretary. Bob and his artist wife Robin, live in Jacksonville, Florida with their two dogs, Reilly and Ziggy. Bob is also a woodworker and makes all of the furnishings for Robin's art festival booth. He also makes one of a kind jewelry or "memories" boxes that he donates to select transplant patients, caregivers, donor families and others who have somehow contributed to making life easier for the ill, the elderly and the less fortunate. Bob is in the final stages of editing two full-length novels that will be available on Kindle when ready for release sometime in early 2017. One is a sci fi novel about an amazing discovery near Roswell, New Mexico and you will be surprised to find it has nothing to do with the Roswell story everyone knows. It features a woman scientist who investigates impact craters for the U.S. Department of the Interior, Dr. Rita Sylvester and her female student intern. The other book is a political thriller that introduces a new hero to the genre, Fargo Dennison.
