We need your help in putting together a video including photos from community service you’ve already done.
There have been countless Feed the Homeless Campaigns, Bundles of Warmth initiatives, Gifts of Life events, and much more. Share your story by sending us photos from a previous campaign where you helped make a difference. A picture is worth a thousand words – show us what one that spells Sikhcess for you.
Please email all photos in .jpg or .png format to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31st, 2010.
Thank you for your continued passion and energy in making your community a better place – we couldn’t do it without you!
Happy Holidays from all of us at Sikhcess!
When you give your support to Sikhcess, you bring a start to something amazing. The full bellies, warm clothing, tutoring, mentoring, and friendships your support brings helps to foster and sustain change a child’s life for the better, forever.
We are very thankful for all of the great things you’ve helped us start. Have a very happy Thanksgiving.
p.s. If you’re looking for a place to volunteer this Thanksgiving Season, we encourage you to consider calling your local homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and food pantries and explaining to them that you’d like to help prepare, serve, and clean up after a meal provided to an under-served population. Keep in mind that this is a very busy time of year and some shelters may be overwhelmed with volunteer activity, so stay patient, and if they say that they are full, offer to volunteer your time into December or January. Odds are that they’ll say “yes!” and “thank you!”
What Does it Take to Help Children in Your Community?
Two feet and a pair of running shoes!
Widely known as one of the premiere North American events in the South Asian community, Bhangra Blowout features some of the top Bhangra teams in the U.S. and Canada. The 17th annual event takes place this weekend in Washington, D.C and showcases eight teams that will compete for $7,500 in cash prizes. Bhangra Blowout has been recognized as one of the largest gatherings organized by college students in the South Asian community.
Sikhcess has been selected as a partnering non-profit and will have members and information available for weekend participants. We promote positive change within our communities, giving back and serving selflessly.
A few weeks ago, Sikhcess hosted a fundraiser in a Chicago suburb at a bowling alley with about 120 participants. Based on feedback from the organizers, volunteers and participants, it was an overwhelming success!
It’s great to know we have the leaders to make it happen, but what about having a fundraiser of your own? What if you want to put together an event for a good cause, have fun doing it but aren’t sure where to start?
Last weekend, the Chicago region held their Strike For Sikhcess bowling fundraiser in Roselle, Illinois. About a week before the scheduled event, we had about 75 confirmed guests but with everyone’s help at Sikhcess to spread the word, we were able to reach a total of about 120 attendees! We want to thank all of you for that late push to make the event a big success! A big “Thank You!” for everyone that made it, especially to those that traveled from other states and long distances.
Don’t forget, Sikhcess’s Chicago region is hosting a bowling fundraiser this Saturday, February 6! We appreciate everyone who has committed so far, but there’s definitely room for more! If you think any of your friends or family might be interested, please let them know and pass the word!
