Child Slave Rescue
Nobel Peace Laureate with Shanthi Yogini - June 2015
What does Yoga for Happiness Academy do and what you can do to support BBA?
We do the following for BBA and you can help us too.
“PENNIES FOR FREEDOM” PROJECT –
You can collect unused change and pennies lying under the couch or from your purse, and redeem the coins for cash at a local Coin star or any coin counting machine. This is a small yet effective way to raise money especially if donating a big amount directly seems like too much of a financial burden.
If you can arrange to keep boxes marked “Pennies for Freedom” in some shops or restaurant, it would amount to a lot more than you can imagine.
INDIAN GIFT STORE –
There are Indian clothes and other small gift items (such as incense, ladies jewelry; traditional Indian handmade cards, key chains, pictures, crafts, bags etc.) available as fund-raisers with us. Whatever you invest towards the gift items will be fully donated to help the children. If you are interested in any of these items you can contact us at 401-305-5265.
USED CLOTH / SHOE / TOY DONATION –
If you have GENTLY USED clothes or toys or shoes, whose size you have outgrown, you may send them directly to BBA, India. BBA welcomes any and all donations because other than these donated clothes, the children get new clothes only once a year. They never play with toys or have art supplies to express their talents. So anything that you can donate that is gently used, will be greatly appreciated.
DIRECT CASH DONATIONS –
Many people, who cannot help by giving pennies or purchasing items due to time or situation constraints, can donate directly to the cause.
You may donate any amount of your choice to the cause below. You may donate as low as $1 or as high as you wish.
We visit India every year and hand over the cash in person to BBA and the children.
AWARENESS PRESENTATIONS –
We do DVD presentations for awareness generation in various events on child slavery and BBA’s rescue operations and other preventive measures. If you would like to invite us to speak to a group or at an event then please contact us 401-305-5365.
Also, we do fund raising events through cultural programs and fun activities from Indian lifestyle, with booths, family activities and catered dinner.
In this manner,we at “Yoga for Happiness Academy” do KARMA YOGA -volunteer work, fulfilling our vision for Global freedom. Your support to us in any way you can will give you an opportunity to acquire Good Karma.
You can bring a smile – the smile of freedom, love, education and community on the face of every child.
