The couple has signed up with the NBI skin bank and is designated as ambassadors for skin donation awareness. This drive will help the cause of burn victims.

Dr Shilpa Karnik of the National Burn Institute's (NBI) Skin Bank confirmed that the couple will now work to increase awareness about skin donation.

"The brand ambassadorship of Rawal and Sampath and their gesture to donate skin could go a long way in creating awareness about skin donation to burn patients to relieve them from their pain and infection," said Karnik.

Skin harvesting is usually done after death and doctors can take up to a 8th of skin from lower extremities as well as the back.
