About the Fundraiser

What Are We Raising Funds For?

We want to raise funds so that we can distribute at least 200 Ganesha idols among as many underprivileged families as we can, as they are unable to spare money for the purchase of a Ganesha idol. A simple donation of Rs.100 will help us gift an Ecofriendly Ganesha to one such family.

What's So Unique About This?

The idols that we are distributing are made with 100% natural ingredients that release effective micro-organisms on dissolution. Each idol contains a plantable seed, and will act as a water-body cleanser on being immersed. Underprivileged families mostly live in precarious conditions, with questionable hygiene and living conditions. Gifting Ganesha idols would not only give families the festive feel they deserve, but also make them understand the importance of the environment! Each family will be a direct participant in the future of the idol - whether it will clean a water-body or grow into a tree.

What Can You Do?

Donate. Every time you donate Rs.100, we will gift one such idol to a family. Donate as much as you can & make Ganesha Chaturthi special for as many families as possible.

Share. Even if you decide not to donate, share the message further in your network of family & friends.
