Eric Parrie Organ Donor
A Yale law student has written a letter to bid farewell to his kidney before donating it to a complete stranger

The selfless act of donating an organ to a complete stranger must be marked with a goodbye. And what better way to bid farewell than posting a long poetic commentary to YouTube.

For kidney donor Eric Parrie, that's just what he did before the operation last August, reports ABC News.

In a half dozen videos posted to YouTube, the 26-year-old Yale law student remarks on how he took his organ for granted.

For the videos, Parrie named his kidney "Dick Posner" after a judge in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals who wrote about the legal aspects of organ donation, according to ABC News.

Perhaps this could be the first of many viral organ donor goodbyes, as Facebook launched its organ donation option this week, spurring thousands of users to sign up for the program.
