Give Gaurav Hope.

I don’t forward chain mail. I don’t believe all those desperate messages asking you to help some child in Africa. I don’t think Bill Gates plans to give any of us any of his cash for passing on random forwards about Windows 2000.  I also don’t think they’ll ever shut down Facebook if I don’t log in every twenty minutes (even though I do.)

But today someone sent me this and I feel like you should know about it, maybe you can help? Maybe I just did?

    Malini,

    You just did i.e. you just did help.

    Your post both gives weight and credence to efforts to help Gaurav as well as increases hits for his situation in Google search.

    Gaurav is from my business school and I have been contributing in a tiny way myself to help him.

    Thanks very much.
