A NEW HOME FOR A NEW LIFE
The Government of Karnataka has announced that they will be building new houses for the flood-affected people in Coorg.
To support this urgent initiative and complete the picture, the team at Rotary Mysore West has planned to offer these houses, essential amenities like gas connections, mattresses, and electrical points etc - the basics needed to kick-start a new life, under their own roof.
The funds collected for this project by ROTARY MYSORE WEST will be used to provide some or all of the following:
1) One gas connection @ approx 2000 INR per home
2) One mattress @ approx 1000 INR per home
3) Three electrical points @ approx 1000 INR per home (2 light points + one plug/charging point)
Here is an example: 10000.00 INR would fund five gas connections or 10 mattresses or 25 electrical points. Or, it would help create two basic homes.
The rebuilding is just beginning now and every contribution will go a long way. So, please donate generously and spread the word.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an Idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such a pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries
