News From On The Ground in India

On Sunday, March 5, 2017, The Giving Back Foundation India held its annual Bumper Sale in Delhi, India organized by Sunita Rana. When the gates opened, 1,500 people of all ages were waiting anxiously to begin the day of shopping for a good cause. Volunteers stood at each booth selling items like toys, bags, household supplies, jewelry, and much more. At the end of the day, the team volunteers including Nauhar and Sunita Rana, Shimona and Himmat Rana, Tripat and Jasjeev Swani , and the St. Michael's staff counted up the money raised from the long day, totaling Rs. 2,65,000 (approximately $3,800). The Bumper Sale was a huge success! Thanks to the help of the many generous volunteers and attendees, the girls at the St. Michael's School will be taken care of through 2018! A huge thanks to Aneel Murarka and Seema Agarwal for their generous donations.
