NESAM.. let's help!

There is always joy when you do something that helps people who are in need. I am fortunate enough to be spreading joy in this manner with the help of an NGO called NESAM. NESAM in Tamil means affection. NESAM was first formed by my mother’s friend, Mrs. Prema. My mother was working with a nationalized bank. She and her colleagues used to contribute a part of their salary for people who were in need of money. They then planned to do the same in a large scale, and thus NESAM was formed in 2001. I happen to be a part of NESAM too, and we help children homes that are in need of financial support. Annually, we buy notebooks, and all stationary for children in all the orphanages we know. We also conduct summer workshops, celebrate Diwali, Christmas and New Year parties with about 1000 children every year.

Every year, we celebrate Christmas, with children from 15 homes and we have planned to do the same this year too. This time around 1000 children are coming. We are in need of volunteers and sponsors to help us in organizing and entertaining the children. I would be grateful and happy if you can come over. I am also planning to buy some essentials for these children and for this I would like your help. Please let me know if you are willing to donate some money for this cause I will give you more details or if you’d like to volunteer, please let me know.

I hope you can donate a small amount for this noble cause.
