Urging the media to generate awareness among people regarding organ donations, Gambhir said, "Thousands die every year for want of organs and I feel that through this initiative we can do the society good as it helps us bridge the gap between the demand for these organs and their availability.

Gambhir also urged everyone to make a firm decision to donate their organs.
