Our goal is to raise $15,000 to send 50 children in India to school. Your Donation- EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! • Please donate as much as you can! We need a total of $15,000 to send 50 children to school for one year. SAMPLE DONATIONS: $33- Cost of uniform $33- Cost of books $242- Cost of basic tuition fees.
