This month, we would like to highlight Krish Parekh, a talented and ambitious 12 year old whose enthusiasm has inspired people of all ages to support our cause.
In 2021, Krish organized a virtual music fundraiser called Children for Children in support of the Akshaya Patra Foundation USA. His original goal was to raise $1,000 but because of his commitment to the cause, he raised $3,000 – that’s triple his original goal!
Building on the success of his previous fundraising campaign, Krish decided to reach for the stars and, on December 26, 2021, he held another virtual fundraiser in support of Akshaya Patra with a goal to raise $21,551. To date, we are pleased to announce that he is currently tracking at over $18,000!
In partnership with Event Partner, Shemaroo, Krish’s promotional videos have now garnered 10,000+ views. Bollywood actor, Omi Vaidya and singer, Mauli Dave graced the stage and even shared the event on their respective social media accounts!
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of our youth supporters, Janvi Parikh (NY), Arnav Bhanwala (OH), Shivam Parikh (OH), Vibhuti Jani (CT) and their families.
To Krish and our supporters, we thank you.
