Be A HoPE Hero

Hi everyone,

We need you! During Diwali, our HoPE Children identified the most destitute elderly people in their villages who require immediate care. Some of these people are disabled, abandoned, unable to care for their bodily functions, or even able to get food or water, and most are all of the above.
It breaks my heart to say, they are experiencing a slow, and incredibly painful death with no one to look after them.

We couldn’t just stand by and watch this happen. That’s why we have started a new initiative “HoPE for the Elderly” where heroes like you can adopt one of these grandparents, and make sure they don’t suffer anymore.

It brings me great pleasure to tell you our HoPE children are leading the way! Just read what our 6th grade HoPE Hero Archana did…

Immediately leaping into action, she identified Periyandi, a 100 year old blind widow living all by herself in a mud hut.

Periyandi has no relatives to look after her, only a local neighbor who gives her the occasional meal when she can spare it. Being blind, Periyandi struggles to do anything without someone’s help.
Out of her immense compassion, Archana was compelled to do something. She discovered that Periyandi enjoyed drinking tea, so on her own, she started to bring her tea every day to make Periyandi smile. Still concerned, Archana ensured our HoPE champions started providing daily, vital food rations to give Periyandi strength and energy.

She could have stopped there, but Archana wanted to ensure her critical needs were taken care of. So every day she travels to a faraway well on Periyandi’s behalf to fetch fresh water. This young girl’s actions just blew us away!

Thousands of our HoPE children are doing heroic feats like this every day. They have taken it upon themselves to provide the love and care these elderly people so desperately need, and have gone out of their way to deliver precious food, water, and clothes – but they need YOU for this support to continue.
It only takes $30 a month/$360 a year to save one of our innocent elder’s lives, and to continue the blossoming of our HoPE children into the compassionate leaders of tomorrow. Without you, none of this would be possible.

Now it’s your turn to be a Hero. Take a moment and click the yellow button below to not only save a life, but to be a Heroic role model for our HoPE children. Choose “Hope For The Elderly” from the “designate to” box, and send our children, and the destitute elderly in their communities, the financial support they need to end this suffering.

Every penny you donate for this program goes to saving these people’s lives. HoPE for the Elderly- $30/month or $360/year to save a life with daily food, clothing, and essentials to restore dignity and HoPE.

PS:
You’ve heard the inspiring story of our HoPE Hero Archana, and her commitmentto saving Periyandi’s life. Our children have identified thousands of other severely impoverished elders just like Periyandi, and now we’re asking for your commitment to save the rest. Our children have stepped up to make sure these people get the loving care they need, but they can’t do it without you

Boystown Seniors Get Help With Writing CVs

Sunny has been teaching Mind Sound Technology to the boys at the Boystown in Selaiyur for about 1.5 years now.  He shared with me last week that it wasn’t until he volunteered here that he knew passion.  To spend time with the boys, to teach them such a valuable practice and too see them thrive and grow is what keeps him up at night thinking of how to spread the MST to more and more youth.  He started a new venture helping other students at his college write their CVs.  This is a profit enterprise that Sunny uses the revenue from to help fund a new venture his fellow school mates started called Ansh.  More about that later.  He helped Karthik from Boystown to write the CV that got him placed at Caterpillar as a Mechanical Engineer.  Congratulations Karthik and thank you Sunny.

He also teaches the boys MLA or Standardized Research Writing to get them involved in national and even international conferences that will give them experience and exposure and ultimately, empowerment!
