Hi, I need your help to raise money for a cause I have made my own for the past 4 years ever since I donated my Kidney to my neurosurgeon brother. It has become my mission to spread awareness about organ donation with myth busting information and inspire others to willingly donate organs to help save the lives of their loved ones and friends.

I am participating in the WORLD TRANSPLANT GAMES  to be held in August this year in the UK and I will represent India in the 100m sprint event. Post the games I will continue my drive around the world to speak to groups, schools, colleges, clubs and people about the divine gift of life. Post the transplant games I will be circumnavigating North and South America covering over 55000kms over a 150 day period across 17 nations in my own car. I have had a lot of help from generous brands and people like you and I seek your help again to make the Gift of Life Adventure's 5th Edition happen. I assure you that with your support and generosity, I will pay it forward and be there for those that need my help with fighting for their right to live. 

For the past 4 years i have driven across 41 countries for over 300 days driving about 85000kms in my quest to bring attention to a life giving gesture that more should be making. Lack of Information creates fear and with my self as an example, I want to tell my story and put to rest all fears and inspire people to willingly donate organs. I want to show them that life post a kidney transplant can not just be normal but also extra ordinary. Show them what it is like to live not just one life but two.  During my drives I have spoken to over 45000 people in gatherings and organized talks and the mission is on.

The other part of my mission is to make the painful bureaucratic and legal system of India more responsive to patients and donors. I have filed a few petitions in the Karnataka High courts in India to ensure patients get the approvals to get a smooth transplant process and as a result create case laws for others to cite if they need to for their own cases. I use the money raised to also fight these court battles. We have prevailed in the courts so far via the Gift of life Adventure Foundation and non profit trust I set up in India. I am an American citizen now living in India and have focused my efforts here as this nation has a lot to de-clutter for the benefits of organ donation to be seen and felt. Part of the money raised will also go towards
1. Funding the law suits
2. To Carbon Neutralize the road Journey

Please do google ‘Gift of Life Adventure’ for more about the body of work I have achieved with the help of so many people and organizations. Also do visit the facebook page 'gift of life adventure' and our YouTube channel with the same name.
