“Charity begins at home but it should not end there.” – Spanish proverb

Look at those innocent eyes. May be you are thinking that these girls are coming from mine or yours next door, street, city or nation. What’s a big deal? Let me explain you a bit. These girls have no shelter of parents or any guardian.

When Siri contacted me if I am please to join to raise her fund drive for Vaidehi Ashram, Hydrabad, India. Why not? There was no other thought in my mind but help, anyway. Thank you Siri for arranging everything and invited us to join this noble cause. I can imagine your hard efforts you have put behind this. You and your family are truly doing wonderful job! Friends, you can read more about this here and here.

Vaidehi Ashram at Hydrabad, India, is home for about 108 girls (from 3 to 22 years of age) who have no parents or a single parent who can no longer take care of them. Every child deserves their life with lots of love, care, fun, and education. But without having parents or lack of fund, all things are just out of imagination for them.

Will you please join us to help these needy children? We need your humble support and little help to carry this challenge. And, we are throwing 40+ raffle prizes for you in return.

How does this Fund Drive work and How to donate for the cause?

1 raffle ticket = $10 = Rs.500

You can contribute anything via PayPal or Credit. Each $10 donation will you give you one raffle ticket towards a raffle prize of your choice. For example, if you donate $50, that will earn you 5 raffle prizes from the list. You can use all your raffle tickets on one prize (in turn increasing the chances in the lucky draw) or on different prizes.

I am giving away Raghvan Iyer’s fabulous cookbook 660 Curries (raffle code: RW7) to one winner and will be shipping WORLDWIDE


You can find the other beautiful prizes and more information here. Once the donation process is completed, please forward your payment confirmation message to info(dot)siri(at)gmail.com, clearly specifying which raffle prize(s) you are interested in. Within 24 hours, your name and contributed amount will be added to the ‘Fund Drive Supporters List‘ at the very end of this post.

The event will close on 25th February and the Ashram children will choose the winners on 27th February via a random drawing. All the winners will be notified via Email. The winners have to provide and confirm their shipping addresses. The prize sponsors will then send the gifts directly to the winners. Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for the prizes to reach you. 

Spread the word

Share about this Fund Drive on your blogs, Facebook, Twitter (with hashtag#vaidehiashram) or any convenient social media. Let your friends and family know about it.

Your support is greatly appreciated. No matter how big or small the sum you raise it will make a real difference to the lives of children.

Thank you very much!

Much love,
