"I was born in Los Angeles to the son of immigrants from India. My parents always taught me to give back and help. In fact I remember a quote from Mother Theresa where she said "At the end of our lives, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we've received or how many great things we've done. We will be judged by 'I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in.'" To me the vision of Cardborigami fulfills that vision of helping people that may be suffering from a natural disaster or just a victim of circumstance and the ability for the Cardborigami solution to help provide a roof over someone or a families head even for one night can change the world."
