Amit Gupta, founder of Photojojo, is a ridiculously nice person. I don’t know him, really, but we’ve had a number of small interactions and every time I come away wishing that I could be as genuinely and consistently pleasant, positive, and kind as he is.
He has just been diagnosed with leukemia. He needs a bone marrow donation from someone of South Asian heritage (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives, or Sri Lanka), but compatible donors are severely underrepresented in the national registry. If you might be a match, please get tested and get in touch.
Seth Godin put it best:
…the twittersphere is lighting up with expressions of support.
But the support he really needs is for you to get a Q-tip, stick it in your cheek and mail it back. The process is free and you can sign up right here.
And Seth has generously put up quite a bounty:
Here’s the deal: if you are a match for Amit and the marrow donation happens, I’ll profile you or the project of your choice on the blog and send you a check for $10,000 for you or the charity of your choice.
Please help Amit, and spread the word. Thanks.
