<p>A few weeks ago Amit Gupta aka SuperAmit on flickr &amp; twitter aka the guy that started Photojojo was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia.At the moment he is going through chemo, but once done he will need a bone marrow transplant for the best chance of survival. Unfortunately because of his ancestry it’s tough to find a donor as not many people of South Asian decent are on the transplant register.<br /><br /><br />
If you are of South Asian decent (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Nepalis, Bhutan, Maldives, or Sri Lankan) you can get a swab kit to see if you are compatible donor. It’s free, painless and takes 2 seconds. If you’re not of South Asian decent or reside outside of the United States, here are some other ways you can help:<br /><br /><br />
    •    Organize a photo booth swabbing party!    •    Spread the word! Share this link. Join the Facebook group.    •    If you’re outside the U.S., get in touch here.    •    Or donate to the National Bone Marrow Registry.<br /><br /><br />
