Wonderful, hopeful, new update from +Amit Gupta:


"… After over 100 drives organized by friends, family, and strangers, celebrity call-outs, a bazillion reblogs (7000+!), tweets, and Facebook posts, press, fundraising and international drives organized by tireless friends, and a couple painful false starts, I’ve got a 10/10 matched donor!

You all literally helped save my life. (And the lives of many others.)"
Many of you have asked, so here’s what’s going on with me. WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE • 8/1979: Born. Grew up in CT, built a killer eraser collection, fell in love with computers. • Left college to start a....

Great video for a great cause – well done! And now, please spread the word!
Chris Messina originally shared:
 
This is a great video by +Rinee Shah for our good friend +Amit Gupta — who is still desperately seeking a bone marrow match.

We're staging a +Swab it for Amit bone marrow swab drive at Google in Mountain View next week on 11/16 — just as other tech firms like Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, and others have done.

But you don't need to come to Google to join the registry — if you're of South Asian descent, you can request a swab kit directly from marrow.org.

And since processing each swab isn't free (it actually costs around $100!), you can donate to help defray these costs: http://www.causes.com/campaigns/179179

It's imperative that +Amit Gupta find a donor as soon as possible — and anything that you can do to help spread the word or improve his chances will be appreciated.

Please do reshare this!

We love that the WSJ Best-seller that Amit contributed to is called: The Big Moo: Stop Trying to Be Perfect and Start Being Remarkable. That's right people. Be remarkable

We're here to help Amit Gupta find a bone marrow match
Introduction
We're here to help Amit Gupta find a bone marrow match!

Amit Gupta is a geek and tech entrepreneur. He started a popular website, Photojojo, and when he sends people products from the site, he includes a couple of plastic dinosaurs — just for fun. That's the kind of guy he is: selfless, caring, honest. He's our friend. He's only 32 years old!

He was diagnosed with acute leukemia very suddenly this fall, and he needs to find a bone marrow match by November 30th, 2011!

Please check out amitguptaneedsyou.com for the drive near you, or order you swab kit online at marrow.org.
