Even as less as $20 would do..We are fortunate and making good money. Our charity in dollar translates into big sum in India and this is the least we can do. If you can’t donate, it will be helpful if you can at least speed the word. It is a Facebook fundraiser and I can share the link if you DM..Thank you.
