Note: Rs. 950 can feed a child for a year
Across India, Millions of children starve for food, they stay hungry for days or even scrub garbage to get a bite of a meal. Malnutrition is a big cause of poor child deaths in India and all around the world. I cannot imagine a day without food and there are kids who are hardly 5 years old and they starve for days before they get to eat food. Some of these horrible stories we heard have melted our heart and we honestly feel the need to do something for the society. When we decided to do something about this, we were in a dilemma about Where do we start? How much to pay? Where will my money go? Amongst other things.
Me (Megha Mehta) & My Husband (Jay Mehta) were both under the same dilemma and hence we started talking to our friends, family & some well-known philanthropists. In our discussions, there were quite a few organizations that came into consideration but Akshaya Patra foundation was a pick of the choice for most of the people we discussed this with. We have been donating to Akshaya Patra foundation and feeding several kids for the entire year. I was surprised to find out that $12 could feed 1 child for the entire year. Can you imagine that? $12 is how much we pay for 1 movie or one sub or one burger and this amount can feed 1 kid for an entire year.
As soon as I learned about this I thought the more the people know about this the more they will donate to this cause, imagine giving up $12 for a sub and feeding a kid for 1 year. This is a call for humanity and this will not break your wallet in any way.
We keep talking to each other and realize we are not doing enough and hence we are on a mission to feed 667 kids for one entire year in order to do so we need Rs. 5,00,000 or $7437.82.
Our mission is to generate $7437.82 by August 2017 and we are asking everyone who reads this blog to take time out and pay any amount to this cause. Your donation is 100% tax exempt.
