Ravi Shanghavi is Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 11 – Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario

Running behind on posting, but not on the cause! Week 11’s donation was made on behalf of Darcy P. to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

For those not local to the Ottawa region, CHEO was founded in 1974 mostly by way of donations.  It was established to provide care for children aged 0-18years and is a “academic pediatric hospital affiliated with the University of Ottawa, with a mandate for care, research and teaching.”

Ravi Shanghavi is Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 10 – Hindu Temple of Ottawa Carleton

Happy Diwali folks!!! Sal Mubarak today too!! (Happy New Year) For those who wish you may read up via wikipedia about Diwali here.    Making my annual trip to the temple for Diwali I decided to make a donation there.   I can still remember when it was first built, and the first Diwali standing in the basement as they’d just poured the foundation.  Time sure flies.   So for week 10 I made a $51 donation to the Hindu Temple of Ottawa Carleton.

Ravi Shanghavi is Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 9 – Seva Foundation

On the suggestion of a kind reader, I’ve made a donation to the Seva Foundation.  I’ve copied below an excerpt from their site, I was immediately touched by this cause and feel most would also be.  Thank you for your suggestion!

“Seva Foundation started as a small group with a big idea, and the idea was this: To be fully human, we must translate our compassion and concern into useful service.

That simple statement conveys something about the nature of compassion that is expressed in most spiritual traditions around the world — that compassion is not just about helping those less fortunate than ourselves, it’s about the realization that we are all connected as one human family.

That sense of compassionate service motivates all of Seva’s work, as we build programs that support people around the world in their efforts to build healthy communities.

Seva’s programs, spanning many cultures and countries, share certain fundamental principles:

Serving the Underserved
Building Healthy Communities
Promoting Sustainability
Working Through Partnerships”

Ravi Shanghavi is Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 8 – NAAR

NAAR – National Alliance for Autism Research is where my week 8 donation went to on behalf of Juli.  The original request was to sponsor Dante’s Dream Team.  Though due to difficulties with their website, I was unable to make the donation to sponsor them.  The organization they are raising funds for though is NAAR.  Which I was able to donate to via www.CanadaHelps.org .  My donation portal of choice.  I’m a wee tardy on this update but I’ll be sure to make a mid week donation this week to bring my campaign up to date.   Best wishes to all, and many thanks for the continued support.  With good fortune I will be able to continue this indefinately.

Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 7 – Children at Risk Ottawa

For week 7 I’ve made a donation on behalf of Margaret Sambol to Children at Risk of Ottawa.  This organization is dedicated to the assistance of children and families of those who are autistic.  For those who aren’t familiar with Autism or ASDs you can learn more here.

Some of the organizations goals are as follows.

  • Children at Risk seeks to increase public awareness of Autism and the impact this disability has on the child and on his or her family.
  • Children at Risk advocates on behalf of Autistic children and their families at the local, provincial and national levels.
  • Children at Risk fosters linkages with other local agencies or organizations in the community.

Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 6 – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa

Local DJ Sinsear dropped me a line on my Youtube video to offer up his suggestion.  He picked the ever worthy cause of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa.

A quote from their website

“Mentoring is about the power of friendship. The volunteers and young people in our programs experience the magic of everyday moments when they are shared with a friend. Everyone needs someone to laugh with, share a dream with, and just hang out… with friends it’s the little things that mean the most.”

I really couldn’t have said it better myself.  This is such a great cause, helping kids in a special way,  It’s just about being there.

I wanted to take a second to say thanks to everyone who’s touched base and offered a suggestion.  I have made note and will work my way through the list.  I’m trying to work on a first in, first out basis.  Though for any events or causes that are pledges for certain dates I’ll do my best to accommodate!

Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 3

The CheapIndianGuy is donating $1,700 to charities you suggest. I’m looking to donate approx $50 weekly to registered charities that people recommend, and give a small explanation in support of why.  So far I’ve gotten a number of recommendations on my Youtube video.

Today I had it in my mind to make the donation for this week.   By chance on Facebook I saw my old colleague Al McCreas invite to join the group “Please Help My Wife – Realize her Dream of Helping Others (Cancer Society)” .   Given I had a suggestion to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society this was ideal!  So I pledged $51 to help Al’s wife Julia accomplish her goal.  It’s true, everyone has been touched by cancer.  Please support the cause.   Thank you Al & Julia McCrea and nuri787.
