I was fortunate enough to attend the American Immigration Council's Immigrant Achievement Awards last week in Washington, DC. One of the recipients was a young man who is a student at Stanford University who deserves the recognition.
Indian-born Vineet Singal last year founded 100KCheeks, an effort to use social media to encourage the registration of 100,000 bone marrow donors. He has already succeeded with that goal. This year he hopes to successfully lead a global effort to register a million people, particularly in India and Indonesia. He's also created a national non-profit organization called Anjna that aims to help better use technology at free clinics.
