Wishing you all a very Happy Holidays! As 2017 comes to a close, Bobby and I have decided to undertake a fundraising campaign to help save a life. A village that we’ve supported for the past 3 years in India called Murtizapur (in Maharashtra) is working together to collect funds for one of their own who they endearingly call Uncle Papu. He is suffering from a severe liver condition called livercirrhosis. Uncle Papu has always helped his fellow villagers in need whether it was driving someone to the city of Akola at midnight for health treatment or waking up at 4 AM to help with water and electricity issues in the village so the kids could reach school on time. Today he is battling a damaged liver condition and needs 30 Lakhs INR ($50,000) to get a liver transplant done and to afford post operative care. As you may well understand, to give such a huge amount for the treatment is not possible for him or his family thus his children have attempted to start a facebook campaign along with any other help they can receive. The donation is urgent as he needs to undergo his surgery in the next 7 days.
Here is a cause we feel strongly about and we are undertaking a big donation this year counting on your support to fulfil this goal. With the Holidays season upon us let's spread some joy and cheer to those who really are in need and join together to help someone get his life back so he can continue to be a good neighbor, friend, father, brother and uncle. No contribution is big or small, please encourage your friends and family to join this cause and we are confident that with your support we will reach our goal.
We would truly truly appreciate your support to fund this campaign with us and spread some joy to his family. We have started the campaign with $5000 as our donation to the family. All funds collected will be paid directly to the hospital. If you would like to donate directly or anonymously (as some of you earlier expressed) please feel free to contact me.
Let's get Uncle Papu back on his feet - please join us in this endeavor. Also don’t forget to forward this email/link below to friends and family who’d like to contribute and please ask them to tag you when they make a donation.
