Vote and help put 40,000 Indian kids in school for a year

// January 17th, 2010 // Uncategorized

One of India’s most trusted and credible NGOs, GiveIndia is taking part in a competition on Facebook to win a US$1 million grant. The winner will be the NGO that gets the highest number of votes from Facebook users. The prize of $1 million will help put or keep 40,000 children across India in school for one year.

I guess I finally found a use for all those friends on Facebook. :-)

What’s really sad at this point is despite our population, we are in the 65th position. Hopefully bloggers can make a difference. Do vote and spread the word:

    Dear Renie,

    Thank you for your super support!!! Votes are climbing, posts are being written and tweets are flying.

    Will this be enough to bring $1 million to India to help 40,000 children? I sure hope so.

  2. Thanks, indeed, dear Renie, for sending the good word across. It’s a mighty good organisation with herculean motives towards the materialization of the burning welfare goals in the nation.

    I’ve done my iota of it and published my post about the competition on my blog after, obviously, voting for it myself. The post is available on Indivine, too, which I believe would further accelerate the responsiveness from amongst our fellow bloggers.

    My best wishes to GiveIndia for their confirmed victory in the fray! :)

    May benevolence prevail ever…!
