I have pondered for days about what to write about my fundraiser and everytime I thought I had it down, I quickly came to a deadend, a writer's block, if you will. So I decided to write exactly what I would talk to you about instead of something that felt very scripted and formal.
I participated in the marathon training program last year (2015) and with the help of friends and family, raised funds towards Vibha. This year has been special. Having been involved with the program, not only as a participant, but also as a volunteer, has made the experience very meaningful. I also had the opportunity to talk to other volunteers who have had the chance to visit some projects that Vibha is actively funding. To hear from them what they learnt, how impressed they were to meet people on the ground who work tirelessly and to interact with the children whose lives Vibha has touched through these projects, gave me immense confidence; confidence that the funds we all donate are put to use in the best possible way.
And I hope that is the confidence I can pass on to you.
The adage "Little drops of water make a mighty ocean" holds very true for a non-profit like Vibha. Every contribution, large or small, will be as meanigful and will make a difference.
If you got this far, I truly thank you for staying with me.
