Hello Friends,

Belated Happy Newyear 2011 to all of you!!

Newyear adds a fresh new page to our life and gives opportunity to do more in our life. This new year 2011 has actually started out well for me and hope it did for you all too. First, I was able meet Sevalaya kids and welcome this new year with a great feeling. Secondly I got my result for the much awaited CFP exam. I survived the battle and passed as one among 51% people all over the nation. With all the good notes, I hope this year bring in more good news to all of us.

A BIG THANK YOU to all of you for contributing graciously which shows your confidence and dedication you have on the organization to support the wonderful cause. I was able to experience the difference our support makes in many kids life during my visit. I visited the school, old age home. I had lunch with kids and talked to sponsoring kids. Check out the pictures at my website album section and click here to watch a short video about the trip as well. Please be patience when it streams the video since it’s in the shared hosting server.

In this year fundraising campaign, we were able to collect $1500 surpassing the last years record of $1375 making it a new target for next year. With this fund, we should be able to continue and sponsor 10 kids like last year and may be add one more kid. Thank you all who helped to achieve this year’s goal.
