Bridge Karo Na: Our (Your) neighbourhood heroes urgently need funds

Bridge Karo Na: Our (Your) neighbourhood heroes urgently need funds.
 

We are a group of enthusiastic people connected to each other through Swaraj University, an alternative learning space for youth. We are based in places across the country and are engaged, in various ways, to create the world we hope to live in.
 
We felt the need to stand up and personally vouch for several passionate, committed people on the frontlines today, serving the most affected - homeless, hungry, sick, stuck, barely surviving. Every day, these neighbourhood heroes struggle to help people and run out of money. We have known them for years and experienced their compassion. And we have, once again, understood and verified their current work. In these overwhelming times, especially with the extended lockdown, they are in even greater need of your support for the next 17 days. 
 
Bridge Karo Na seeks to connect those who feel called upon to give with those who, we believe, will use that contribution wisely and with great integrity. Through this platform, we name them, salute them and connect them to you.
 
If you have felt overwhelmed by the choices available for you to give, without knowing how to assess their credibility and to donate with confidence, we hope this will bring you to ease in letting your support flow with lightness and light in your heart.
 
Spread the trust. Share this with 10 people who completely trust your word.
These neighbourhood heroes need your support, right now!
 

If you would like to donate to a specific neighbourhood hero, please mention it in the comments when you donate and we will make sure that your money reaches them.

  1. - Shades Of The Sea- Harsh Gupta                                                                                                         
    We aim to create a platform for all of us to discuss and share words on LGBTQIA+ individuals understanding them as humans and support them to come out with their gifts and talents. In this lock-down we have been trying to support those queers who are living all alone in small groups and starving for food & medical help.
    As we know the bitter reality that many queer individuals are living all alone they are living there life on no fix plans. They beg in the day time or do some small work and at they go out on sex work so that they can generate some money for themselves.

    In this lock-down period, they are facing the most difficult time as they aren't able to do anything for the food.

    SOTS has been supporting a few individuals with the support of contacts and self savings.                                                                          Surendra
