#SocialShaadi Dollar-For-Dollar Donation for COVID19

A dollar-for-dollar donation initiative for daily wage workers & frontliners as India locks down for 21 days

In its fight against COVID19, India has taken a bold step to lock itself down for 21 days. Whilst this is a step in the right direction, this unprecedented experiment of 1.38 Billion people being locked down is likely to have severe ramifications on the lives of the 100 million-odd daily wage workers & migrants who will struggle to survive.

In these trying times, it is only right that we do our bit to go beyond armchair discussions and debates on Facebook & Whatsapp groups and step out to do our bit to support the marginalized and help them survive this ordeal.

Hence Dipti & I are kickstarting this "dollar-for-dollar" matching fundraiser campaign via Milaap to support a few specific campaigns that addresses the needs of daily wage workers & migrants (including daily meals, ration and shelter) as well as supporting the brave, frontline doctors and nurses with resources such as masks, ventilators, isolation facilities. 

Whatever amount that we raise through this campaign, we will top it up by an equivalent amount from our end and donate to 5-6 causes including  
   - Zomato & CORO India's efforts to provide meals to daily wage workers;
  - Shishir's Joshi's Project Mumbai to equip medics with N95 masks and PPEs;     - United Way Chennai's efforts to procure additional ventilators;
  - Doctors For You's effort to setup a quarantine hospital in Bihar;
  - Shishu Care Foundation's efforts to procure PPEs for frontline doctors &
    nurses under the guidance of Dr. Bharat.K. Reddy


We request and urge all of you to support us in this mission by contributing an amount that you deem fit and also by sharing the link of this campaign with your family, friends and colleagues so that we can maximize the reach & impact - from our past experience of running such campaigns on Milaap, for every $1 that you donate in person, you can potentially help add 30 cents (30% impact) through indirect donations by sharing with your near and dear ones :)

Thank you for your support in advance. Let's help India win this mammoth battle.

Stay home, be safe and take care!

Having hit our 2nd target of 10 Lacs under 10 hours, we are encouraged to double our efforts to hit INR 20 Lacs (SGD 40K equivalent) but this time only thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit and compassion of our friends Saurav Bhattacharya & Ujjaini Ghosh, who too have decided to join us in this 1-for-1 matching donation initiative :)

We would also like to thank our dear friend and eminent artist, Riya Naskar, who has very kindly allowed us to use one of her digital paintings, "Privilege" as the feature image of this fundraiser as it stands to give all of us some perspective during this ongoing battle. You can follow her on Instagram at @riyanaskar
                             

It's amazing to see contributions and support come in different forms and shapes from different corners :)
We sincerely thanks all the 99 donors thus far from different parts of the world that have supported this fundraiser wholeheartedly and have inspired us to do more.

We hope to hit our INR 20 Lacs target in the next 24 hours and we shall then consolidate the funds and donate it to the 5-6 causes that were mentioned in our original campaign message and we will send you a final report with the details of fund allocation so as to be accountable to you.

Please do share the campaign link with your friends & family so that we can achieve our goal soon and do our bit to help the millions in need.

Love & Gratitude
