An Appeal

We all get so caught up in our own lives, cribbing about our little 'problems', that we seldom think with gratitude of all the things we do have going on for us. Things we take so much for granted. Love of parents and family, for instance. And food, for another. When I saw this post of Siri about her visit to an orphanage with kids ranging from 3 to 22 years, it made me pause. She talks about how even the youngest of kids ate their food without fuss and how in the ashram, no food is wasted. The kids all go to school/college, are well dressed and are being raised for self reliance. Their blog talks about the cultural programs the residents participate in, vocational training and life skills imparted to these kids.

This ashram is run on contributions and Siri has organized a raffle drive to raise funds for this wonderful institution. Click here to see the details of the raffle draws. Each Rs. 500 or $10 donation is eligible for one raffle ticket and you get to choose which prize you want to use it for. This works on PayPal or credit card. Or if you wish to send your contributions directly, please draw a cheque or a demand draft in favour of - M/s Vaidehi Seva Samithi and send to the address below.

We all have a moral responsibility to take care our brothers and sisters of this world and it can be done by just spreading the word around and your blog just did that. Keep such blogs coming .... Good cause time worth spent.
