Most of you know that my birthday is on 5th September (Teacher’s day). All these years you have been sending me loads of wishes and messages. Some of you have even expressed it with gifts.
On the eve of my birthday I'm reaching out to you upfront to wish me differently this time. Here's the reason. Recently I did some fund raising for my house maid’s son, Nitin’s eye surgery. To my surprise, I could raise ₹40,000 in just 1 week with the help of only 10 supporters. Inspired by it to do more, this year I'm celebrating my birthday with an online fundraising event.
Oops, I forgot to mention how I'd be using these funds. I will be donating the proceeds to a local Non Profit Organisation - 'Udaan Welfare Foundation' to be used for their Saksham Community Centre.
The Saksham Community Centre is based out of Thane, Maharashtra and works for the welfare of under privileged women & children in the areas of health, education and skill-development. Please visit https://www.udaanwelfare.org/saksham/ to know more about their activities.
I’m not a celebrity to raise huge amounts but I know I have lovely friends & relatives around me that will help me raise this relatively small amount . So please donate for a noble cause and help me share my passion of helping others.
Love you all!
Dr. Mufassil Dingankar
