Delightful Diwali for the Under priveleged children [Ananda Deepavali]

Hi all,

As you all know Deepavali, the festival of lights that unite the entire family, relatives and friends to add more meaning and smiles to everyone’s life.

Udhavum ullangal [Helping hearts], the name of the organization is self explanatory to the nature of its kind.

Udhavam Ullangal has been organizing Ananda Deepavali [Delightful Deepavali] for the 10th time since 1998 where they bring in under-privileged, visually impaired, physically challenged and special children from various Orphanages and homes across Tamilnadu to let them celebrate this prosperous festival of lights on 4th November 2007 , the way every other kid celebrates by wearing new clothes, play crackers, a sumptuous feast and lots of entertainment activities as well.

Since this is going to be 10th Ananda Deepavali, they have planned to celebrate it with around 2,000 children at Rani Meiyammai hall, Chennai.

Let’s take this as an opportunity to let those little hearts know that we care for them and join hands to make this celebration a grand success.

Request you all to help in raising funds for this noble occasion.

Whatever the funds [Crossed cheque/Cash] that you contribute could be claimed as exemption under section “80 G” [Cheques should be drawn on “Udhavum Ullangal”] with receipts from UU.

Need volunteers to canvass and raise funds / sell tickets [Ticket Books].

Take a moment to study the enclosed list to decide on the ways in which you can help. This year too, your act of giving will provide these wonderful children with dresses, feast and a variety of entertainment; and above all, a gift that has no parallel- the gift of love and caring.

Help us create another magical Anandha Deepavali this year!
