Charity

Ravi Shanghavi Ottawa

Still thinking about this, would love to encourage more people to donate.  We have so much to offer and many times we don’t realize it.  Time, our experiences, and our resources.

 

Ravi Shanghavi Ottawa

 

For a quick recap.  This is what this effort was all about.

 

So we did it folks. We’ve donated a total of $1,950 to charities! Congratulations! After 39weeks of donations on behalf of others this campaign comes to an end. It started with me rolling the below list of coins. I then decided instead of donating all of these coins to one charity, I thought it would be of greater benefit if I split the donations up. I took it even further by deciding I would donate to causes suggested by others on their behalf. I figured if I could just get a few more people thinking about donating to worthy causes it would help. We tried to do as many Ottawa based charities as possible.

7,650 pennies
1,250 dimes
864 quarters
760 nickels
300 toonies (two dollar coins)
96 loonies (one dollar coins)
and misc amount of dollar bills I’d traded in for change over time.

Below you’ll see the final list of charities and causes that have been donated to. Originally we’d have ended at 34 weeks but this was extended by generous donation by the Cheng family. So we’ve wrapped it up at 39weeks and $1,950 donated. Best wishes to all. – Ravi Shanghavi, Ottawa
