This monsoon has wreaked havoc in South India, specifically Kodagu and Kerala. There are many wonderful people out there doing their bit to help people in their hour of need.
This fundraiser is a rather specific one - my colleagues, friends and I are collecting funds to send undergarments to people in Kodagu. You might wonder why we're being this specific
- there are already an abundance of food donations
- A great friend of ours has an undergarment store and is doing his bit by providing articles at cost price
- clammy undergarments lead to all kinds of infections and discomfort. People have lost almost all they have, they don't need to battle illness too
- if possible, we will update this fundraiser to provide for other essentials as well as soon as we can find suppliers for the materials
We are in touch with people who are working actively on ground through the Kodava Samaj in Bangalore.
Here's the break up of funds requested
Bras in 3 sizes at ₹60/- per piece x 1000 pieces = 3x1000x60 = ₹1,80,000
Panties in 3 sizes at ₹55/- per piece x 1000 pieces = 3x1000x55= ₹1,65,000
Briefs men in 3 sizes at ₹55/- per piece x 1000 pieces. = 3x1000x55=₹1,65,000
Total - 180000+165000+165000+40000 = ₹5,50,000
