Our Mission

Our mission is to engage every Indian-American temple, business, student association and service organization in the concept of Seva (service) by helping those in need. While Seva can take many forms, this project provides a meaningful volunteer opportunity to all through active participation in the organization of blood and bone marrow donation drives. It also champions leadership development among the younger generation by giving them the resources and support they need to become models of successful and socially responsible individuals in our society.

Hindu Seva Day on 9/11 will be commemorated by blood and bone marrow donation drives in American-Indian temples, businesses, service and student organizations in North America.


Dr. Kapil Vij is 45 years old, has 2 children (3 and 5) with a 3rd on the way. He has blood cancer and his condition is deteriorating very fast. His only chance for survival is a stem cell transplant. The greatest chance for a match comes from the South Asian community which is severely underrepresented in the donor registry!

Getting swabbed is easy -- https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=o3l1PK7vh54 And if it's a match, blood stem cell donation is simple and painless.

Please consider getting swabbed to help Kapil's or another South Asian's life. Here is where you can get a swab kit join.bethematch.org/Kapil. You can learn more about Kapil at the Hope4Kapil Facebook page.
