Happy Thanksgiving!

FTH, Mainpage, Seva, Sikhcess, Thanksgivingon November 25th, 2010No Comments

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.

Sikhcess Team

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!”

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?

Sikhcess has a humble philosophy. This simplicity is our strength, our backbone: flexible, open and transparent. It’s all about giving back to the community, to those struggling to make it to tomorrow along with those that just need a blanket and food.

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.
