About the campaign
We want to raise funds to conduct TOSS (Talent of School Students) an inter school cultural competition for schools students in and around Tirunelveli, TamilNadu.
About TOSS (Talent Of School Students)
Kids from rural back grounds don’t have many facilities to express their creativity. We started TOSS to give rural kids an opportunity to uncover their potential and to pursue excellence in arts.
We have conducted TOSS (Talent of School students) for the year 2011, 2012 and 2013. Around 1000 students from 25 to 30 schools participate. We conduct 25 different competitions. Entry is free for all students.
Through TOSS, We realized that when we appreciate students’ artistic individuality, we will take profound leaps into the future of performing arts.
It will also help the students to develop Inter school bonds through performing arts.
About Cre8ive Dance School:
Cre8ive academy of dance established in the year 2010 has an aim of exploring the untapped potential of school and college students in performing arts.
Today Cre8ive stands as a community where kids can express their creative side. We believe in promoting self confidence resulting in high self esteem through Dance and Music.
We strongly believe through performing arts, our students get the inspiration and courage they need to grow as critical-thinkers and creators.
Impact of TOSS: 
With our experience of conducting competitions, we realized that these program help students to explore their unique talent, increase their confidence, increase their self esteem and feel valued.

How would we spend the money?
We are aiming to raise a total sum of INR 450000
The tentative expenses include:
Rent for Space – INR 40000
Sounds and Light – INR 150000
Prize money- INR 120000
Stage, backdrop, Ad (Paper & TV) – INR 100000
Transport and invitation for schools – INR 40000
Why we are fundraising
Most government schools don’t have many opportunities for extracurricular and this seems to be the ONLY opportunity for our kids to explore their talents.
We have been conducting TOSS with the support of our family, friends and well wishers. For the last two years we haven’t able to conduct because of financial constraints.
This year with your support, we are planning to conduct TOSS and also take this to more rural schools. Hence we would require your support for this event.
