Hey AWESOME beings who took time off to visit this page! Please bear with me a little longer as I explain what this initiative is all about. Thank you!
Before anything, I want to thank my amazing friend Yuddhveer for this really inspiring idea. Never would have thought of it on my own. (:
Just a brief intro, Hariom inter college is a school located in a Dhanori,roorkee, Haridwar.I was blessed with the crazy opportunity to be part of a volunteer project for poor people education and food.
I met the most innocent, yet mature kids one could encounter. They welcomed us into the comfort of their homes and loved us endlessly. We taught them academics, but these kids taught me life lessons instead. Lessons that I could have never learnt in the comfort of my own home and environment. We learnt more from them than they from us. They showed me how to be content with life, and how easily happiness comes. Their joy was definitely contagious, trust me on that. Most of all, they reminded me that I am blessed for all that I have been given. What a meaningless gift it would be if I do not pay it forward and pass it on to the ones who weren't as priviledged?
And so, I decided to start this fundraiser. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate my grand (official) entrance into adulthood than to do something that is close to my heart. My birthday fundraiser's main purpose is to raise sufficient funds for the school's refurbishment (in terms of carpets as they now sit on the ground throughout, bookshelves and shoe racks - all of which are currently lacking) and to purchase school uniforms and stationery for nearly 110 kids before the start of a New Year. This is all with the fervent hope that it makes a difference and the school is more conducive for the students' learning.
Help me in this journey to fulfill their needs. If you have gotten this far, that itself is truly a statement of how awesome you are! So perhaps, take that one more step and donate to this cause or simply spread the word.
I assure you that every contribution of yours will go a long way. The kids are praying. Be an answer to their prayers. May God Bless.
