Hi,I am Anushka Sharma,a student of Class 12th at DPS, Bangalore North. A pretty familiar name huh? Well, it means rays of the sun.
Let me tell you more about this campaign of mine. A few days ago, our school had a program where the team from Fueladream.com told us about a crowdfunding program which is going to help raise funds for children who are suffering from Muscular Dystrophy. When asked how many people knew about it, there was one hand that went up. Just one. If people don't know about this condition, how do we expect them to treat it?
The fact that a contribution of just Rs 20,000 can fund the treatment of an underprivileged child suffering from DMD for an entire year. Thanks to the efforts of the NGO called DART, I realized that I must do something to help these children. They need rays of sunshine in their lives too. I strongly believe that we can help children suffering from DMD and make a difference to their lives.
This condition is terminal, and the parents of these children cannot afford the treatment, so in almost all cases, the child is given absolutely no treatment. That is so disheartening to hear, think of what the parents would go through. The money that you may spend on ONE shopping spree, can be used to make the difference to the life of one child.
So please fund my campaign, and help me change the lives of these children!
Every contribution counts, and you will get to keep a tab on where the money is spent.
