A little over a year after Josh Richards passed away following a nightclub shooting, his parents received a letter in the mail offering them some comfort.

It was a letter stating that because Josh was an organ, eye and tissue donor, he was able to help people across the U.S. and in Switzerland. That letter was just the beginning – soon they starting receiving letters of gratitude from his recipients too.

To date, Josh’s organs helped seven people, his corneas restored sight for two people and his tissues provided life-saving and life-enhancing possibilities for 239 people.
