When I was in India at the end of December 2014, I observed an immense contrast firsthand- affluence and extreme poverty residing closely together.
Before I departed back to the U.S., I made a promise to the orphanage's founder that I would help fundraise for an additional floor to the orphanage. They have been turning away applicants because there just isn't enough room to house more orphans. I am fulfilling that promise by setting up this fundraising page and will fundraise for as long as I can.
100% that is received from this page will go toward the orphanage. If you are unable to donate, that is completely understandable, I just ask that you spread the word about this fundraiser to get them that 2nd floor. The cost is US$1,500, but I am increasing the fundraising goal to cover the fees associated with setting up this page and also for the fee charged for the Western Union transfer I will ultimately make once the fundraiser ends.
