Why am I fundraising?

This New Year's, we want to get 1000 orphans around Bangalore City meals from McDonald's. Some of us worked in an orphanage for some time and noticed that the kids there really loved McDonald's burgers. With A Thousand Smiling Faces, we're going to try and recreate the joy we saw on those kids' faces when they ate. You can read more about it on this blog post.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

The funds are going to go straight to McDonald's. They've already agreed to give us a 20% discount, but we still have to raise ₹88,000. As a tenth grade student, that's a fair bit outside my budget. We've got a bunch of orphanages to which we'll send the meals. I ask you, reader of this page, to donate as much as you can to the cause. It's ₹80 to the meal plus 10% processing fees and so on. It's up to you to decide how many smiles you want to create.


  • Why McDonald's?

        We chose McDonald's even though there are healthier, cheaper alternatives 
        on the grounds that on New Year's day, we want to give the kids a treat, not
        necessarily a nutritious meal which they would probably get otherwise anyway.

  • Who is the team?
        The team consists of several teenagers. We're going to go to each of the 
        orphanages and make sure that the burgers arrive. We're also going to get 
        plenty of pictures.

  • Where do I get updates about what's going on?
        We have a Facebook page here which we'll update regularly, so you'll always know what we're up to.

  • How do I know that my money is going where you're saying it is?
        You don't. At least, not until after the event. Once the event is 
        over, we'll release a set of accounts showing that the money has gone
        where we say it will.
