Andy Mackie was literally sick and tired. After nine heart operations, he couldn't abide the miserable side-effects of the 15 medications doctors had prescribed. So he decided to make a parting gift. Rather than investing in his monthly pharmaceuticals, Mr. Mackie purchased 300 harmonicas to give away to school children. And then a funny thing happened. He didn't die. So the next month he bought 300 more harmonicas and took them from school to school. Eleven years and 16,000 harmonicas later, Mr. Mackie passed away at the age of 73.
