Donate haircut money to feed the hungry in India

Millions of daily-wage workers in India face starvation amid the coronavirus lockdown. While relief stations are serving meals to the masses, millions still are left without food and sit on the brink of starvation without being able to return to work during the lockdown.

Our Solution:
We are preparing meal kits that feed a family of four for 15 days. We also have women sanitary kits with hygiene needs for women in a time where these needs may be neglected.

These packets are distributed to slums in India where daily-wage workers can obtain food essentials to cook for two weeks and the women can receive more than two months' supply of sanitary needs.

The food packet = $20
(feeds a family of four for 15 days)
Atta (whole wheat flour) - 5kg
Rice - 5kg
Cooking oil - 2L
Lentils - 2kg
Cooking spices - 4 packets
Salt - 1 packet

Woman Kit = $8
Sanitary napkins - pack of 40
Shampoo
Soap

Things are tight for everyone, we know. If you are in a position to share, please consider donating to help feed families, and women receive essential supplies. 

Think of it this way:

-ONE meal at an average American restaurant can feed a family of FOUR for 15 days

-The cost of ONE man’s haircut can supply 2 WOMEN with hygiene necessities for almost 2 months

Your donation can save lives

Why We Care:
We are a team of Social entrepreneurs, passionate about helping individuals overcome barriers like illiteracy and poverty.

We have always believed that teaching a man to fish is far better than giving him a fish. 

However, due to the recent pandemic, where the men aren’t allowed to go catch a fish, we feel we need to share our fish to help them survive. To do our part, we are distributing food and sanitary supplies to daily wage workers affected by the lockdown.
Please, visit our fundraiser link and help us share fish with those who cannot fish today. 

Thank you for your support.
Help us spread the word.
