THE STORY:

Final update 1/3/2016

Campaign ‘3000 Blankets for flood victims of Chennai Slum area’ has been successfully completed on Jan 2nd, 2016. Colorful, warm and cozy blankets cheered recipients up and they sent us huge appreciation.

As predicated The consignment was arrived to the VOC Nagar slum area Chennai on Dec 25 from Haryana and stored in a local school. Mr Mutthu, Balagan, Paul (Be Educated Coordinator from AP) and Mr Ratnam played a major role in planning and execution of this massive task of distribution. Indeed, this was a huge task bringing 2350 people and make sure each victim household receives least one blanket. To avoid chaos, team distributed one token to each family member 2 days prior to the function that states date/time to show up. Thanks to the local police who helped in this process as well. The functions started early in the morning and went until late afternoon. Finally, we gave away all 2350 blankets.

I take a moment to thank the entire team who made this campaign possible. I still remember how Mahendra, Manusubhu and I talked to few victims of this area on Dec 5th and decided to provide 3000 blankets to people who has lost almost all their belongings and struggling to get their life back to the track. On the Dec 7th we created a campaign site and asked help from our friends and soon Kamlesh Bhai, Parthivan, Satish, Subhash Bhai, Charan, Major Minhas (all from Delaware), Ashok Patel (Harrington), Mahesh (NJ), Vijay Shankar (CT), The Advisory Board Inc. (Washington DC), my colleagues at DelDOT, Ray Prasad (OR), Desik from UD and Rajeev (India) joined and we together within 10 days we raised $8622. Same time Mahendra and Rajeev (India) coordinated with a blanket manufacture from Haryana and negotiated 2350 blankets in same fund. Forgive me if I missed anyone name.  Thanks to Ankur Gupta (www.ambeyspinningmills.com) for smooth transaction.

Again I just wanted to say ‘GREAT TEAM WORK GUYS, YES WE DID IT' and in this holiday session we brought some smiles to families who are going through tough time. 

Thanks and wish you all a very happy new year.

Blanket Campaign Update - Sending 2250 Blankets for Flood Victims 

Thanks for being part of this campaign in helping and contributing toward this very humanitarian cause. We have closed this campaign as declared and now getting ready for execution part. We have collected $8,292 towards 1658 blankets (55% or our target). Same time while collecting fund another team was working with a Manufacturer in India. We found (http://www.ambeyspinningmills.com/) located at Panipath, Haryana. (Thanks Rajeev Chetan from India for helping us out).

We negotiated good deal now in same money we are able to send 2250 blankets for Chennai flood victims (is it not AMAZING?). On top of that we are not sending regular relief blankets but nice colorful cozy fleece Blankets(usually they are expensive compare to regular woolen relief blankets and also request by victims). Hope this will brings some relief and smile to the faces of the people who have gone through tough days.

I will send you two more emails. One when shipment is ready (by Dec 21,2015) and another when blankets get distributed, along with pictures (on 25-26 Dec,2015, or between Christmas and New Year Day).

********

While it continues to rain on and off and the conditions for many in low-lying areas of the city remains severe, City of Chennai is slowly getting back onto its feet. We are very deeply touched by devastating floods and damages it caused to everyone, particularly poor people living in low lying areas.

We have picked a slum area of VOC Nagar, Chennai, a dwelling of more than 5000 households and  talked to few residents and social worker, and assessed that people are in dire need of some assistance from us. All their belonging have submerged into the water. Many organizations have taken up the tasks of supplying food and water. However, the people from the area are asking for blankets and bedsheets as to be a big immediate help and future help keeping upcoming winter season in mind.

Be Educated along with Indian Community have pledged to supply 3000 blankets in this area. We checked the price and it seems each blanket will cost a mere $5 including logistics. If we all come forward and chip in few the goal in within reach.

May we request you to come forward and donation few blankets for needy residents of VOC Nagar (a low lying slum area in Chennai-12). Please remember area we picked up is one of the poorest area of city, people has lost almost everything, so this small gift (one blanket) helps to save their children from wet/chilly nights.

You may contact and assess the situation directly from our local volunteers in the areas if you wish.

Please spread this message. We will close this campaign by end of 12/15/2015, and send all relief by end of 12/20/2015. So please RUSH.

Thanks,
