Designer Joey Roth is auctioning a limited run of 24-karat gold Sorapots to help out BB pal Amit Gupta, who recently fell ill with leukaemia: "South Asians are severely underrepresented in the pool of registered bone marrow donors. 100% of profits from the auctions will go to drives, both here and in India, to find and register potential donors."

The odds of someone of South Asian descent finding a match are only 1 in 20,000.

Here's my review of the Sorapot from some time ago.
