The Nicholas Effect is the touching and transcendent book by Reg Green, father of Nicholas Green. Nicholas was the little boy from Bodega Bay, CA, who was shot in Italy and whose organs Reg and his wife, Maggie, donated to seven Italians. This act led to an outpouring of love by the people of Italy, a sharp increase in organ donor rates, and a deluge of media attention, both overseas and in the U.S."The Nicholas effect" is how his parents refer to the wonderful things that people do in response to hearing Nicholas' story. People look inside themselves to see what they can give back to the world. Depending on their circumstances and talents, they start scholarships, dedicate parks or schools, write poems or stories, or simply hug their children more often.Reg and Maggie Green have appeared on countless stages, TV studios, and newspaper front pages. Their actions have been honored by presidents, army generals, and religious leaders. The story of Nicholas has been a made-for-television movie, starring Jamie Lee Curtis. Four years after the death of Nicholas, the movement of remembrance and action has, if anything, gathered in momentum.The Nicholas Effect gives people a chance to learn more, both about this amazing family and about the people of the world who have shown their love for Nicholas. Reg Green, a journalist, speaks from his heart in accessible and eloquent prose. His willingness and openness in sharing with the rest of us is a gift. The event that spawned the movement was a sad one, but the story of the world's response is life-affirming.… (mais)
