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!

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.

The UK is on a run for rallying the world to vote for Sikhcess!

Neel Thakerar Encouraging People: http://sikhcess.org/vote

Volunteers have used ordinary tools like paper, mobile phones, and YouTube, and creatively put super-energy in to capturing people’s attention.  The result has been a charged up movement that’s viral – changing the agar of the world!

They’re doing this to bring attention to a remarkable idea – to end the word’s most challenging problems; things like war, drug trafficking, ignorance, ad terrorism – and unite the world. This is an enormous undertaking, and they’re using creativity to convince people.

Their goal is to spread a message: uniting the world’s children in the spirit of global synergy; engaging them with world-class education, advanced digital technology, and culturally-rich interaction.

Take Action Now. Vote for Sikhcess.

In harsh economic times, who would have thought that two “unlikely” organizations would team up to help feed the needy this Thanksgiving?

On Sunday, November 22nd, The Detroit Medical Center (DMC) and Detroit Public Schools (DPS) helped serve a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with special-care packages for guests at the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries’ (DRMM) Oasis shelter. Residents from Sinai-Grace Hospital and Adult Education Students put on their aprons, gloves, and hairnets and got down to cooking!
