For a Cause

November 18, 2010 at 4:36 pm 4 comments

I stopped writing a short while back for reasons and today I am back to it for another one! I feel it happens to be a right one too because it is not just about anything, it is all about a ‘Cause’, actually multiple weaved into one.

Being in PR I have organized, attended many press conferences but the one I went for today was different. And here is why:

  • One, I was not actively handling the media so I had the time to sit and listen to what the organizers and speakers had to say.
  • Second, they were talking ‘big numbers’ but not business
  • Third, till today I thought marathons are about film stars adding glam factor to attract the masses and for sponsors to make a lot of moolah. At the event there were a bunch of enthusiasts from 13 to 50 plus all running in the upcoming ‘Airtel Half Delhi Marathon’ to raise funds for various NGOs across India.

Everyone does have a story to share, I heard so many from the students of Deepalaya, an NGO which educates children from the under privileged background. A bunch of their ex-students have now pledged to raise a crore that can go towards educating many more like them. If you have the same sentiments then log on to www.deepalaya.org

There were big corporate profile holders  but with the most humble approach in life. There was a man who everyone thought was blind, but I stand corrected he was one of those few in the room with a ‘vision’. The man is George Abraham and to know more about him or his work click http://eyeway.org/adhm2010

You can also log on to http://www.concernindiafoundation.org official NGO partner for the Airtel Half Delhi Marathon. Concern is the gateway organization through which funds raised from the run will be routed to various foundations.

Contribute, volunteer and support a charity because there are many out there who can achieve a lot with a little effort from us.  Must I add it is taxfree too 🙂
