Kind hearted souls please help me raise $2000 for the Citizen Forum Vidya Mandir School, Amritsar, India. The Mission of the School is to provide free education to the children of Drug Addicts and underprivileged in Amritsar city.

Friends in last two years you have helped me raise $3600 for Citizen Forum Vidya Mandir School, India. The money has helped the school buy shoes for kids, set up computer lab and construct new rooms.

This time as i leave for India i want to raise another $2000 for the school. The school is always in need of money with ever increasing costs and expenses. This time around i want to raise money for the school and its hard working teachers. The teachers of the school get a bare minimum salary, as the school is a non profit entity. Sometimes i wonder how these teachers survive with that salary. So this time i want to use part of these funds and give it as a bonus to these hard working teachers. We have around 15 teachers. So each teacher will get around a $70 bonus. Even though that is not much but it will give these teachers an inspiration that someone out there cares for them and appreciates their work. Rest of $1000 will be used for the school expenses.

So let’s join hands & give back out of genuine feeling of gratitude towards this universe who has given us so much. Let us share our bounties with these kids in this small way.
