Laurie Lee joins Abundant team as a producer.


Non-directed kidney donor Laurie Lee has joined the team producing Abundant, Maitri River Productions’ documentary series about living kidney donation.  Laurie, who is a recognizable personality in the kidney donation field, is a founding member of Transplant Village and facilitates a monthly Kidney Champion Program at Northwestern Medicine.

In 2018 Laurie co-organized the largest-ever gathering of living organ donors in Chicago, Illinois.  The event was documented and established the Guinness World Record for the Greatest Number of Living Organ Transplant Donors in 1 place.  Laurie participated in Abigail Marsh’s groundbreaking research on non-directed kidney donors and she volunteers tirelessly for living kidney donation.

Laurie brings a motivated energy and entrepreneurial spirit to Abundant’s production team, assuming a role which has direct influence on the production’s content.  “Laurie’s experience as a non-directed kidney donor is a must for Abundant,” Executive Producer, Donald Griswold commented.  “Abundant’s unique content is based on non-directed donor narratives and research, so it only makes sense that the project’s leadership is guided by a non-directed kidney donor.  Laurie Lee was my first choice and I’m thrilled we have  her on the production team now!”

Laurie comes aboard the project as Abundant is casting non-directed donors for a live storytelling show which will be prominently featured in Abundant.  Donor to Donor presents CrowdSource for Life: Storytellers currently has 49 non-directed donor auditions for the ten open spots in the show.  In addition, Abundant’s Non-Directed Donor Research Project Survey has 54 participants signed up thanks to Laurie’s networking.  The research project‘s results will be part of the unique non-directed donor content in Abundant.

Welcome to the team, Laurie!
