George Higginson died after a traffic accident when he was 10.
He'd agreed to be an organ donor, meaning his body parts went to people who needed them after he'd died.
Ricky met George's family to learn more about organ donation.
George loved to play with his two younger brothers, kicking a football around with eight-year-old Henry while always looking out for three-year-old Max.
George was also really passionate about science and anything to do with space. At night he spent hours reading his favourite book about the famous scientist Galileo. Even his teachers at school called him their 'little scientist.'

But at 10-years-old George's life was tragically cut short when his bike was in a crash with a pick-up truck near his house in Overton, Lancashire.
It left George with serious head injuries and he died the following day at the Royal Children's Hospital in Manchester.
Despite the tragedy, George's sudden death saved the lives of five different people who were seriously ill.

That's because George decided he wanted to donate parts of his body to help others.
He told his parents, Jonathan and Sarah, he wanted to be an organ donor after watching a TV show just weeks before he died.
His kidney, heart and other vital organs were quickly put into other people's bodies to try and make them better.
Many people are signed up to a special register, allowing their organs to be given to other people once they pass away. These days you can sign up to the register on the internet, but it's not for everyone and it isn't compulsory.
