Vathsa Rangaraj's Fundraiser:

Miles to Smiles - TO SAVE THE CHILDREN OF SYRIA

BENEFITING: Save the Children

Vathsa Rangaraj

THE STORY:

Vision

Our primary goal is to raise funds for children education worldwide. The need of the hour is in Syria.

 

Mission

The main purpose of this fundraiser is to set and achieve goals that not only stretch our physical limits but is also sustainable.

 

Instead of creating an event we are incorporating tasks into daily life and substituting luxury with physical effort to showcase our commitment towards the cause. For example, we can give up certain luxuries such as commuting to work by car, reducing our comforts by spending less money.

 

 

 

Objective

As part of the challenge we are pledging towards clocking a minimum monthly mileage of 1600 miles accumulated by walking, running or cycling.

 

Goal

In an effort to help raise awareness and funds for providing continuous unhindered education and support to the children affected by the civil war in Syria.

 

We are hoping that all of you will help us raise a dollar per mile of activity to reach a monthly goal of $1,600

 

For any donation exceeding our goal of $1,600, we promise to match those additional dollars with extra miles of activity.

The proceeds and the donations paid through this link will automatically go to an organization - SAVE THE CHILDREN (https://www.crowdrise.com/savethechildren) who are doing an exceptional job worldwide in rehabilitating, building hope and creating a better world for the children. Their work in Syria is inspiring and commendable and we hope to be a part of it.. 

 

Team

We are a group of friends sharing similar interests who have known each other for over a decade, who are now passionate enough to commit to a cause and carry it through to affect the world positively.

 

Pledge

Each of our team members have pledged a certain number of miles, which is beyond each of ours' comfort level. The drive for us is the cause. The more we do, the more we can give...

Thank You for motivating me to participate in this fundraiser @Shiva, Vats, Adi, Sneha and Vinay. I was not able to accomplish the task I pledged but I was close and will continue this month also to try and achieve it. I should share with you guys that I was able to make many aware of what you guys are doing by having conversation about my pledge. Hoping that some of them will join me in supporting you guys in reaching your goals for this fundraiser. 3 years ago
