I met Geet as a phone number forward on whatsapp with the introduction she's someone who I could reach out to for anything. I had no clue what to expect , what does anything mean when my father has COVID and I am trying to manage his care from overseas, why would a person who has never known me help me with anything at all. I was proved wrong. Angels do exist on Earth and sometimes they take human forms to help others. She had no clue who I was for almost 2 weeks. She selflessly spent her money never knowing if I’ll ever pay her back . All she knew is I couldn't be near my dad and oxygen and medicines needed to be arranged for him. Since then I have learnt that she not only selflessly helps strangers like me but she keeps aside half of her salary so that she can help people who can't afford anything . She does this across all barriers of society, cast or creed. My belief in humanity and the fact that selfless brave souls exist has been restored because I met people like her. Brave because even when Covid is raging across India she visits slums and distribute food packets.
Started the campaign with an initial starter contribution here . Geet will provide the receipts of the items to access the fund raised .
I wanted to set up this fundraiser because people like Geet cannot do it by themselves and people like her who is serving humanity with no traditional organizational operational overhead deserves our support. After my initial standalone initial direct contribution , i realized that we can take help from the community and help many more people using a fund raising platform . I have become a believer of a strong p2p( people to people) network and enabling those who are helping selflessly as much as possible.
