Nivaranam 2016 – Raised $57,096.23!
Nivaranam (Meaning Relief) fundraiser music show raised $57,096.23 on Sep 11th 2016 to fund 4 projects back in Sri Lanka. Without the donors help it wouldn’t have been possible to raise this amount in just 10 days!
1) “Mobile Medical Unit for the physically challenged” in the town of Killinochchi administered by Uyirillai
2) “Livelihood Assistance for women headed families” through Sangami Womens in Mullaitivu
3) “Prevention of School dropouts” through Humanitarian Hands in Batticaloa
4) Alcohol & Drug Awareness program for students in Killinochchi
Once again we proved that there are so many good gods among us. During the show, Senthil Kumaran – founder of “Hearts For Humanity” made a plea asking people to come on stage to donate a minimum of $500 each, while kneeling down and singing the Tamil song “Isai Kettal Puvi Asainthaadum”. A stroll of people rushed and gave a total of $18,000 just during those 5 minutes showing their support for this good cause.
All the expenses of the show for the fundraiser were taken care of by Senthil Kumaran and 100% of donations were given to the cause.
Thanks to all those who supported & donated.
