Be A Symbol of Hope for Those Who are Waiting

Organ Donation is an opportunity to help others. People who are on an

organ waiting list typically have end-stage organ disease that

significantly impacts their quality of life and maybe near the end of their

life. Receiving an organ can become a life-changing and life-saving event for them.

The organ transplant list is always long with over 500,000 people on the

waitlist at any given time, waiting for an organ.

​​​Organ donation can be a rewarding and positive experience. It can help

a family work through a grieving process and deal with their loss

knowing their loved one saved up to 8 lives.

In 2017, a mere 0.009% of India’s population donated their organs while

over 500,000 didn’t make it due to the lack of donations.

Statistics don’t lie, it is clear that there are fewer organ donors, but you can change that! Saving lives is something we think we can’t do, but in reality, it's so simple!

What are you waiting for? Step up and pledge your organs!

Cavemen in North America?

A remarkable discovery shows that humans arrived in North America 7,000 years before archaeologists previously thought. The fossil footprints discovered on the shores of an ancient lake in White Sands National Park, New Mexico, are the oldest discovered in North America and are 23,000 years old. Because of the timing, people occupied sections of the southern continent during the last Ice Age, contradicting our earlier assumptions about when and how they travelled south. Previous theory was that during the last Ice Age, between 26,500 and 19,000 years ago, the first people of North America crossed the land bridge that existed between today's Siberia and Alaska. According to this argument, they would have to stay in the Arctic as further south it would be difficult due to the ice sheets covering Canada. Migration to South America began between 16,000 and 13,500 years ago when these glaciers retreated.
