A friend posted this on her facebook and I am reposting it here. If anyone would like to help this girl, the bank details are given below.
A friend [ Lavanya Parameshwar ] is collecting a modest amount to pay college tuition fees for the daughter of her neighbourhood iron-wallah. The girl has worked very hard to get into a decent college (B.Com), and the 25k per annum is a big amount for the family. If you can help, please let her know here. This will be purely on trust and as a support for a hardworking young woman, not through a NGO, hence no receipts, tax exemption etc.
This blog is an effort to help. Help India, help ourselves to help ourselves. Because if we dont do it, no one will. Anyone with an urge to do more than just be a bystander to the carnage and mayhem that wrecks the parts of our country everytime we have a disaster causes by external elements or through natural causes, can help. We will maintain a database of people who are in a position and are willing to be of assistance, either immediately during the crisis itself, or later in relief and rehabilitation.We will put people wanting to contribute financially to victims in direct contact with NGOs doing the same or the victims directly.We will look for good samaritans who are willing to contribute towards medical expenses, post traumatic therapy requirements, and prosthesis requirements for those rendered disabled in such situations.We will attempt to sponsor the education of the bereaved children by putting dedicated and serious citizens who wish to do so in direct contact with the bereaved family.We have many hopes. And need all the help we can. Write in to email@example.com if you would like to help in anyway, or have any suggestions.
