Donnie Wahlberg Used Twitter To Find Kidney Match For Fan

One day last year, while Donnie Wahlberg was reading his Twitter, he came across a link to the story of Bobbette Miller — a fan of his from Tennessee in desperate need of a kidney transplant — and decided to take action by retweeting the woman’s situation to his followers.

Cut to today, and the young woman is scheduled for a surgery in June!

After the post went up, the Vanderbilt University Medical team in Nashville apparently received thousands of phone calls from people all inquiring about being potential donors. Six matches were found, and Bobbette Miller will receive her new kidney next month.

On the situation, Wahlberg told The Boston Herald, “It’s a testament to the value of Twitter when used for more than telling people what one is eating for dinner or using it to sell products by tweeting as an endorser.”

A similar instance regarding celebs using their twitters for good occurred recently when Adam Lambert tweeted his desire to raise money for charity: water for his birthday, exceeding the request 10 fold.
