My name is Trisha Bondal and I'm a 16 year old student. I attend Delhi Public School, Bangalore(North) and I'm currently in grade 12. I sincerely hope you support my campaign and help me raise 40,000 INR to give a child the chance to FIGHT and most importantly a chance to LIVE and EXPERIENCE all the joys and sorrows that are a part of life.

                                 

Heart surgeries performed on children cost typically cost between 2.5L to 5L depending on the case and complexity. The Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar (RBI) in association with the Needy Heart Foundation have partnered with 2 of the best hospitals in Bangalore and are now able to impact & make these surgeries available at a much much lower cost of close to ₹1,20,000. Of this I'm hoping to raise ₹40,000 and they will contribute another ₹40,000 and the balance will be raised by the hospital(s) through government subsidies and from grants from other people & from other NGO’s.

HELP ME RAISE ₹40,000 & SAVE A CHILD’S LIFE.

The money raised will be given to the folks at the Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar & they will pay the amounts to the two hospitals – Jayadeva Hospital & Fortis Bangalore. Once the money is given to the hospital they will use it to save the life of a poor child and share the details with me. I will then send you an update about the child WE have SAVED so that you know where your money has gone.

ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN:

My name Trisha Bondal and I'm a 16 year old student. I attend Delhi Public School, Bangalore(North) and I'm currently in grade 12. I've always wanted to do something that matters and help people in whatever way possible. I'm grateful to have finally received an opportunity to positively impact someone's life. I signed up on FuelADream as a part of the DPS Big Hearts initiative to raise funds to make sure that one underprivileged child receives a free heart surgery. The partnership with the Rotary means that the cost of the surgery is subsidized to ₹1,20,000, I need to raise ₹40,000 in order to save one child’s life. Net of the crowdfunding charges ₹35,000 + will be given to the Rotary who will then transfer the same to one of the two hospitals. The balance amount will be collected/raised by Jayadeva & Fortis Hospitals through government subsidies and their own donor network that includes other NGO’s & individual funders.


                                 

                                                                         ^That's me.

I have undertaken this campaign because I believe that everyone deserves a chance to live, to experience a wide range of emotions, to find themselves, to pursue their dreams, achieve their goals and ambitions. Doing this ensures that one more child gets the opportunity to live a happy and healthy life rather than suffer for days on end, lose all hope and faith and inevitably become just another casualty of poverty. Further, I believe that healthcare is a basic necessity that should be available to everyone irrespective of their financial status.

I come from a privileged background and I haven't had to go through any hardships that compare to the ones these children have had to face and the question that plagues my mind now is what makes our lives more meaningful than theirs? What makes us better than them? Do they not deserve the same healthcare and opportunities as us? I strongly urge you to donate, even if it is a ₹100. Every rupee counts.

The motto of Delhi Public School is ‘Service Before Self’ and in order to show our dedication to our school’s motto, we have joined the ‘Big Heart’ campaign to champion underprivileged children that need urgent cardiac surgeries. We are doing this with 2 institutions of repute in Bangalore

FAQs

Will we get to know details of the child who benefited?

Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to Rotary who will then give it to the hospital. It will take from 30 to 60 days after that to get details of who the beneficiary child was with details of her parents , her picture etc. Once I get this information from the team at Rotary & Needy Hearts ( as they collaborate on this) I shall upload this on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiary.

What are the crowdfunding charges?

Fueladream charges 2% for the payment for the payment gateway and 7% as crowdfunding charges. With service tax the total comes to 10.3%. There is also an initial fee of 3000 INR which is being waived for us. Of the 40000 INR a net amount of 35880 INR will be transferred to the Rotary Foundation.

When do I get the receipts?

It takes a week after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred. The receipts will start getting processed about 2 to 3 weeks AFTER the campaign is closed and will be sent to you directly .

How does crowdfunding work?

Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.

It’s s 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 is a crowdfunding site and 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 a FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
