Pretty good deal? You bet. If my blog can help feed 50 underprivileged children today, I would blog about this every single day for the rest of my life to make sure each post fed fifty kids.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation happens to be one of my pet causes because we always believe in ‘anna daanam’ (food as a form of charity) to be the highest of all goodwill deeds that one could do. And we are already associated with them, doing our little bit via contributions.
Each time there’s a special occasion like an anniversary, birthday or an “in memory of”, some good news to celebrate, in our family, we make it memorable with a donation to a charitable cause, rather than go out and spend it on ourselves. The deep sense of contentment that comes with this act is totally unmatched.
“No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger.”
Indeed. And the Akshaya Patra Foundation (ISKCON) is doing a fantastic job of feeding children, encouraging them to attend school. I have heard a lot of feedback about the program – they serve good food to the children in the remotest areas. We feel so happy when we see their vans every day.
The Child That is Hungry Must be fed
The Akshaya Patra Foundation is the largest non-profit organisation in the world to implement the school meal programme. What started in Bangalore 10 years ago as a pilot programme has now expanded to 18 locations across 8 states in India to feed over 1.2 million children today. That’s some achievement! They are internationally recognized and awarded for their noble effort.
Friends, please support the Akshaya Patra Foundation.
You can donate online right from the comfort of your keyboard, sitting where you are.
You know what they say about little drops of water forming the mighty ocean – every little helps. I don’t know how many times we’ve recited “Children are the future” – and support them we should. Food is a survival issue. It is the least we could do.
