A few weeks ago, MyHeritageDNA launched DNA Quest, a new pro bono initiative to help adoptees and their birth families reunite through genetic testing. The initiative was launched initially only in the USA.
Now, MyHeritageDNA is going global with the program. The company just announced:
More than 10,000 applications were submitted so far to receive free DNA kits, from the quota of 15,000 free DNA kits pledged by MyHeritage, worth more than one million dollars.
Being that the deadline for submissions is the end of April 2018 and there are still about 3 more weeks to go, and in light of the many requests we received from the community to expand DNA Quest worldwide, we decided to increase the scope of the project, from USA-only to global. This means that people are now eligible to participate in DNA Quest regardless of their place of residence and regardless of where the adoption took place.
In the most recent announcement, the company stated: “Please help us spread the word on social media, especially with the news about DNA Quest going global, and include a link to the www.dnaquest.org website to make this dream a reality for families around the world.”
