Hi, My name is Deeksha Revanna and I am in Grade 9 at the Chrysalis High School at Yelahanka, Bengaluru.
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 elderly people who urgently need to undergo cataract surgeries. I was shocked to learn that there are 11mn people who are impacted in India because of this.
I cannot imagine what it is to go blind. The fact that a contribution of just Rs 1000 can make a difference to the life of someone & give them back their sight made me realise that I must do something to help. I was really surprised that it takes just INR 1000 to make a difference.
I strongly believe that we can help those who are needy and in the process, transform their lives. Please support my campaign and let us together bring light into the lives of these people. Keep funding this till the last date. While my goal is INR 10000, I would like to raise much more than that and help more elderly people see again.
INR 1000 is what you and me would spend if we went out on a weekend to a theatre to watch a movie and have popcorn and lunch. That amount is all it takes to give sight to one person and change their life and the life of their families.
