The Matthew Wright Foundation
The Matthew Wright Foundation was created to keep Matthew Wright's memory alive through our LET PEOPLE KNOW campaign, the support of ANIMAL WELFARE and by creating the MATTHEW WRIGHT SCHOLARSHIP FUND to help kids who can't afford to go to college.
On March 24th of 2018, Matthew Wright was driving down the road when a truck struck his car. He was taken to the hospital. As much as the dedicated medical team tried, their efforts in perform life-saving procedures were unsuccessful. Matthew was a registered organ donor and he had LET PEOPLE KNOW. Even with his passing, Matthew showed others deep kindness. He was able to save four people’s lives and give two people the gift of sight.
LET PEOPLE KNOW YOU'RE AN ORGAN DONOR
Matthew Wright had a conversation with his parents about his wish to be an organ donor. When his accident left him brain dead, Matthew's parents already knew his wishes. Because he LET PEOPLE KNOW, Matthew saved four lives and gave two people the gift of sight. One of the lives he saved was 9-year old Landyn Ozuna Valdez.
Please register to be an organ donor. And, more importantly, LET PEOPLE KNOW! Help give people, like Landyn, a second chance at life.
