I came across this info on Ravelry, and thought I would pass it along here for crocheters and knitters in Michigan.
"In January 2011 the Michigan Donor Family Council, MDFC, organized a program to provide comfort shawls to new organ, tissue, and eye donor families. It is our hope that this small gift of compassion will bring these families comfort in their time of sorrow and transition."

I have started a comfort shawl in a pale yellow color with a simple hdc stitch and a large hook. I also hope to complete a second one in ivory. I will post pictures when I have them completed.
