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.

    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

Dear Donor,

The service starts with a tiny spark, a glimmer of love in soft, soulful eyes.

Your kind gift had created a miracle for the people who were most vulnerable during lockdown period. On behalf of Bridge Karo Na campaign, we, and those we have served, sincerely appreciate your generosity. Your generous contribution helped us to support our Neighborhood Heroes, who were tirelessly serving in their respective localities across India to various communities and migrant laborers.  

(Should we write how the campaign has started in two three lines and the events and workshops we had offered for fundraising) if you feel we need to add, please write it.

Because of your generous contribution

Anahita, a young musician from Rishikesh was able to feed 400+ people during the complete lockdown, helped two people with crucial medical treatment and post operative care, provide medical supplies to people in need, distribute masks and sanitizers to around 200 people, feed 40-50 dogs, 30+ cows and 10-15 mules daily during the entire lockdown.

Mr. M. Radhakrishnan from Smt. RAJESWARI RADHAKRISHNAN CHARITABLE TRUST, Chennai, was able to fed and support street vendors, disabled people who used to sell stuff in local trains, stranded migrant labourers, SC/ST villagers; slum dwellers, Adhivasis, folk artists, temple priests, who are underprivileged people who lost their means of livelihood due to the lockdown in ten cities of Tamilnadu state.

Surendra Harsh, A LGBTQIA activist, had supported 50+ youth in Indore, from the community of queer people, who are unknown human being and never exists for mainstream and traditional and conservative society.

Ritik Gopal, a young student from Bihar, was deeply moved by the pain and suffering of migrant laborers during the nationwide lockdown, has supported people who were stranded, and had no means of livelihood left by providing ration and direct cash transfer in 11 states of India.

Anuj, a young entrepreneur from Indore has fed hundreds of people who are walking thousands of kilometers with no or very less resources to reach their villages from various cities of India.

Donors like you are the XXXXX of the society who ensure that no one die because of hunger. We would like to express our deep gratitude for your kindness by sharing and celebrating these small victories with you during one of the most difficult time humanity is facing on the planet. We know we have a long way to go to create a beautiful and just world. But we are now more confident that with the support of people like you, together we can do that.

Here are some of the testimonials from our Neighborhood Heroes:

Mr. M Radhakrishnan: “I am deriving immense satisfaction - for being able to serve the hungry/needy at the time of a calamity. This is the reflection that keeps popping up in my heart - Existence has given everything to me and what else could be my purpose in life but to reciprocate the same by serving the needy - two priorities before me - NO one should suffer for food (atleast one square meal a day) and no one should suffer for education due to poverty, as I suffered for the above during my childhood.

A Big Thanks from the bottom of my heart for the timely help. And I very much value the confidence you all have in me and in the Trust"s activities. My sincere thanks to all donors, campaigners, entire team members and all individual involved for the timely help.”

Ritik Gopal: “इतना सब आप सभी लोगों की वज़ह से ही हो पाया है, मजदूरों ने बहुत दुआएँ दी हैं आप सभी को, एक संदेश भी गया है उनके बीच की जरूरतमंद के बारे में भी सोचने वाले लोग बचें हैं अभी दुनिया में,इंसानियत अभी भी बची हुई है । उन सभी लोगों की तरफ़ से आप सभी लोगों को हमारा प्रणाम । बहुत बहुत शुक्रिया ।”
