Blood by SMS

Blood by SMS

With no knowledge of how an online portal would work, Khushroo took on this life saving challenge. He mentions, "During the time, there were no companies booking or hosting web domains in India. I was paying $ 300 every three months to keep the site live and running. Meanwhile, I had spent almost Rs 40,000 in developing the website [www. IndianBloodDonors.com] and had gone practically bankrupt."
This was when he got the brainwave and contacted a television news channel (zee news) and requested them to flash the name of the website he had started for this cause. Minutes later the site crashed due to heavy traffic visiting it

Along came the cellular wave and www.indianblooddonors.com (IBD) became mobile. All one had to do was type out a message and send it to a short code and you'd have a list of blood donors in your inbox.

IBD is not yet registered as an NGO. Khushroo says, "We function as individuals. We don't take donations and only accept bumper stickers (of IBD) and postage stamps to send out those stickers and create awareness

If you want to do good work, you simply do it."as the saying goes the more u give, the more you shall receive. To him and his family's relief, ends were met mysteriously through some way or the other.
