Just in time for Valentine's Day, WestJet and WestJet Cares for Kids charitable partner, the David Foster Foundation, have released a video that features a grateful 16-year-old heart transplant recipient and urges  Canadians to become registered organ donors.

WestJet Thanks: From the heart follows young heart transplant recipient and dancer, Alyssa, as she thanks her Fredericton, New Brunswick dance community for giving her strength and support throughout her transplant journey. Enter Blake McGrath, renowned Canadian choreographer, dancer and recording artist, who helps Alyssa give her troupe a surprise. To view the video, click here.

"This Valentine's Day, WestJet urges you to watch Alyssa's story and, like me, share your decision to become a donor and complete a donor registration card," said Richard Bartrem, WestJet Vice-President, Marketing Communications. "Taking these steps can help more children receive the gift of life so they can get back to doing what they love. Through WestJet Cares for Kids, we are committed to supporting partners like the David Foster Foundation by providing the gift of flight, helping alleviate some of the financial burden that travelling to medical appointments can cause, and ensuring families can be together while their child undergoes a life-saving organ transplant."
