Hi SF Stumblers, Help save a life!
StumbleUpon is hosting a drive to help find a bone marrow match for Amit Gupta, in an effort to save his life. 11/16 from 2pm - 6pm
Meet Amit Gupta: founder of Photojojo and Jelly, organizer of entrepreneurial events like BarCamp, thought leader who contributed to a WSJ best-seller about remarkable businesses, and an all-around great guy. Unfortunately, the most recent descriptor he's taken on is acute leukemia sufferer, and he has less than 35 days to find a bone marrow match. What's making matters worse is that because Amit is of South Asian descent, he's severely underrepresented in the donor pool and especially needs those of this ethnicity to step forward.
What's involved? - The test simply involves a cotton swab sample from the mouth. There are no invasive or other medical procedures needed. The entire process will be a short 10 minutes.
- The test is totally FREE to participants, but donations for the test are accepted (cost is $100/test) - For more information visit http://amitguptaneedsyou.com/

The tech world has rallied to help Amit in his race for his life. Social media should be used for dire circumstances like this, so let's tap the power of the crowd.
