No, I was not born into poverty. How incredibly lucky.
But I witnessed poverty every day of my childhood, growing up in India.
Children in extreme poverty.
Children who had everyday jobs.
Children who were less fortunate. Far less fortunate.
I resolved I would do my bit to help children in poverty once I am able to earn my living. I have been earning for almost 10 years and I am sorry to say I have done nothing.
Nothing for ten years. Nothing about an issue that is so close to my heart.
This is my wake up call.
Do your part to make a difference. And leave me a comment here and I will donate a $ for you.
