I have always believed in the motto, “The purpose of life is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
My father has been active in Rotary for over 20 years now & has been a President of Rotary Pune Metro. I have grown up with that community & whatever the public opinion of Rotary, one term in Rotary always has stuck in my mind. “Service above self”.
Today, I got to know that Rotary District 3131 (basically Pune & its surrounding regions) is conducting a drive to encourage people to donate their organs. I have been a blood donor a few times & this was something that I always wanted to do.
The process is extremely simple, you go to their website & input your details. What you have to understand is, you are just pledging your body for a good cause.
My mother was heading out to the library today and what she said left me teary eyed – “I will go someday, but I hope that my Eyes help someone see the world as I’ve seen it”.
How to Donate:
1. Visit their website (https://www.giftlife.co.in/) & fill up the necessary information.
2. Upload an ID proof. What I found out was, if the image size is too heavy, it won’t upload. So remember to resize it to around 500 pixels.
3. Fill up an emergency contact person information.
4. Submit & it will give you an PDF file with your certificate.
This event is organised by Rotary District 3131 & is backed by NOTTO – the official Government of India body.
I appeal everyone to take up this cause. If you do Pledge, comment on this message.
