Vintage St. Louis Video: KISS Gives Back To Toddler Who Needed Liver Transplant


Back in 1983, a young St. Louisian named Amy Hardin needed a liver transplant. Friends, family and even President Reagan expressed support for the child -- although perhaps the biggest donor to the cause was KISS, who apparently gave money from a 1983 Kiel Auditorium show to Amy's cause. Here's a video about the situation, posted by an eBay user called EliteWorks who's selling off vintage KISS memorabilia. Incidentally -- anyone know what happened to Amy? [Edit: An anonymous commenter left a link to a newspaper article that reports that Amy died in 1988.]
