Here in Trivandrum, Kerala, we have just finished celebrating Onam, the harvest festival in Kerala. It is a time of family reunions and celebration, with sumptuous feasts on banana leaves and gifts of new clothes to the near and dear.
Soon after Onam, we got a visitor, Dr S. Valsala Devi, a Professor of Pathology, one of the many who had signed up for our “Share to Care” program.
Every Onam, my three sons bring me gifts of new clothes. Too many!
This time I told them, if you want to give me some gift for Onam, give it for “Share to Care”
And here is the money!
Thank you Dr Valsala Devi for this thoughtful gift!
“Share to Care” is the program that we launched three months ago, where well-wishers sign up to share something for the needy when they celebrate something like a birthday or a festival or when they observe a loved one’s death anniversary.
We already have more than 100 people who have signed up for “Share to Care”. Would you care to? It would take only 3 minutes of your time.
