As most of you all are aware I have been associated with Sambhav Foundation for few years now. This year am running for Sambhav Foundation!! Support the cause!!
Please share this with your friends and family, if you you are willing volunteer for Sambhav Foundation please go-ahead and create your own appeal page or call me for any info.
SAMBHAV FOUNDATION is an NGO which serves/ trains/ provides opportunities to children with DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES.
The orgn works on bootstrapped funds and from various small personal donations. Was wondering how to raise a substantial amount as a “war chest” for them so that they are not too dependent on ‘ad-hoc” small funding.
That’s when the idea of running for them; running for this cause came to me. And so this year during the TCS 10 k (May 2014), I will be running BAREFOOT for this cause.
Am planning to raise 3Lac through which all the food requirements for SAMBHAV kids can be taken care of for the entire year. Any small/ big contributions (Rs. 500/ Rs. 1000 onwards) from yourself would be greatly appreciated. You can make contribution through online/cash/chq. You will receive 80G receipt as well.
