On the occasion of Rayna’s 6th b’day please consider donating to CRY – Child Rights and You who is committed to bring about positive changes in children’s lives
I’m ringing in nearly a half-century (!) on February 13, and Child Rights and You (CRY) America has been a major part of my life for the past 18 years. I’ve also recently started as an employee of the organization, and I am thrilled with the opportunity to work toward CRY America’s goal of restoring basic rights to children in India and the U.S.
All children have a right to education. And CRY America’s experience has shown that connecting children to viable primary and secondary schooling plays a major role in preventing child marriage and child labor – both serious issues that continue to afflict marginalized communities throughout India.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have met children who have benefited from CRY America’s support on the educational front. That particular project’s work to ensure that schools are open, and that parents realize the importance of enrolling their children, produced a dramatic change. These boys and girls spoke of their future plans with confidence, optimism and through enthusiastic smiles. Their accomplishments – in the face of dire alternatives – continue to inspire me to this day.
With your donation to CRY America, I hope you’ll join me in celebrating not just my birthday, but more importantly, their bright futures and those of children yet to be reached.
As Yuvraj completes his first year, we look back at these 365 days and are filled with all types of emotions and beautiful memories – so many beautiful memories, so many joys.. from his first smile to his giggles, from carrying him in our arms to him crawling around the house, from rocking this cute baby to sleep to him trying to dance on his own.. from figuring out his formula to him covering his face with his first foods, from giving him his first bath to him looking forward to splashing endlessly…
Despite this not being our first rodeo with a newborn, it came with its own challenges. But we feel so blessed and thankful for all the help, advice, good wishes, resources, and our friends & family – with their help we have thrived through this time.
We also recognize that not every child is so fortunate, and we would like to do our bit to help spread the good vibes and opportunities. As you already know, for over a decade we have been involved with CRY (Child Rights and You). In large parts we believe the kids we have directly/indirectly helped have sent us a lot of blessings and good Karma.
With your help, we would like to continue this exchange.
Therefore, for Yuvraj’s first birthday, in lieu of gifts, we request you to make a donation to CRY.
Thank you for your love & support.

Instead of bringing her presents, please donate to CRY to help enroll more children in schools and get better healthcare.
You know there will be many “little hands” applauding your support.
Thanks for your kind donation.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.
It’s not how much we givebut how much love we put into giving.
Honoured to have been part of Angel’s day…
This is a fundraiser for Vidit’s birthday. This money will go directly to NGOs affiliated with the CRY organization in India. Any amount will be highly appreciated!
Thanks- Disha & Vivek
