    This fundraiser will benefit

    Thulukanam

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu



I'm writing this story to help a homeless individual named Mr. Thulukanam. He was born in 1947, now 73 years old. When young his parents died and since then has been living on the streets for almost 40 years. He currently sleeps at a small bus stop near Vivekananda College, Mylapore. He says that borrows few bucks from locals and eats at Amma’s cafeteria “idly” during weekdays. He mentions that during cyclone seasons, “he had gone a full week without access to any kind of food unless some locals offer something.” He says “this has been the situation for a long time and can’t remember the last time slept or ate peacefully.” Still at this age, he wants to work and earn money to feed himself. We all need one fair opportunity to lead a simple life, but I just feel this thatha has never got any since 1947. Let's make him happy once at least!

Help to get 3 things to kickstart his life back intro track: 1 loading rickshaw, 4-5 new clothes, and a room to live for the next 6 months.

p.s. If you want to change tip amount, select other and type the amount as zero..
