About us

Giving to Help Others was founded by Team Margot Foundation, a charity run by brother and sister team, Yaser and Nadia Martini in partnership with NHS Blood and Transplant. Sadly, in 2014 Yaser lost his 2 year old daughter, Margot, to blood cancer. Margot required a bone marrow transplant (also known as a stem cell transplant) to stand the best chance of survival and she urgently needed a donor. 

Team Margot has been campaigning and raising awareness for more potential bone marrow / stem cell donors to join the register – especially people with a mixed genealogy. Margot’s mixed family background was the key obstacle to finding her a perfect match. Read more about Margot’s story here.

Blood and platelet donations were also hugely important to Margot, as they are to all blood cancer patients in order to keep them clinically well. Margot’s story also touches upon organ donation, which is why Giving to help others promotes all forms of donation, especially in the black, Asian, mixed race and minority ethnic (BAME) communities where the need is greatest. So please help us spread the word by having a conversation with friends and family and directing them to this site for information on how they can help save lives.
