Josh Morrison, JD, was so moved by a 2007 essay about one woman’s desperate search for a kidney that he decided he wanted to donate one. “Okay, I can save someone’s life,” the self-described nonconformist told himself.

It took a few years, but in 2011 he donated a kidney to a stranger who’d been waiting 8 years. Then in 2014, Morrison, a Harvard Law School graduate, left corporate law and cofounded Waitlist Zero, whose mission is to make it easier for patients to ask for a kidney and donors to give one.

Living organ donation in the US has dropped because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, Morrison said. After reading a March 31 article about how young, healthy individuals like himself could accelerate the development of a COVID-19 vaccine, he knew he had found another cause worthy of his passion for doing good.
