The next time the road calls out to you to pay it a visit, you can choose to change someone’s life in the process. Let every moment you take in the wind in your hair, the landscape left behind and the beckoning horizon, count for a greater good. Pledge your ride for a cause. Pick a cause you believe in below. Inspire your friends, family and others like yourself to join you and help you in raising funds and reaching your target. Be it Cycling or riding your Motorcycle across borders, make it count.
Let your tete-a-tete with the road bring you back with a sense of immense pride. Restoring another human being’s sense of pride, self sufficiency and financial independence is a very big deal. Go ahead. Ride the way you love to, while inspiring others. Be the change you want to see.
Milaap was initiated in June 2010, by three passionate young entrepreneurs who had a single vision, to change people's concept of giving and make it a personal, transparent and sustainable process. By crowd-sourcing loans for social causes, Milaap enables the urban global citizen to make an impact in a small but accountable way. You can choose a person you want to help, make a returnable contribution for as little as $25 and watch the magic ensue. The end borrowers are the deserving, working poor of India, students, small businesses, families who need a small amount of capital to get ahead and change their lives for the better.
