A Lubbock family honored the memory of their son Saturday, and encouraged others to follow in his footsteps and give the gift of life. This is Jody and Gail Barnes'second year hosting the Toadbucket Nationals Car and Motorcycle Show, named in honor of their four year-old son Christopher 'Toadbucket' Barnes. Barnes died two years ago in a car accident, and his parents donated his organs to four people across the country in desperate need of transplants. They encourage everyone to be an organ donor, and help save others when their own loved ones pass away.
"Organ donation always comes from a tragic death, whenever that happens you can make somthing good out of that and you help your loved one live on," says father Jody Barnes.
They raised more than $5,000, with all the money going to fund meetings between organ donors and organ recipients. The Barnes family will soon go to California to meet with 3 year-old Jasmine, the recipient of Christopher's heart.
