CRYSTAL BAR SOAP HAS COMMITTED 10% FROM OUR CHAKRA COLLECTION LAUNCH DAY TO COVID RELIEF IN INDIA
Why This Charity?
As a small business we believe in making our actions make the biggest impact. When we make charitable donations we want to make sure our $$ goes directly to those in need without a middle party taking a large portion for fees and expenses. Because we did not directly knew a person in India that we could send money to in order to help we looked elsewhere. We discovered this local crowdfunding charity and knew this would be the best place to share our resources with. With clear instructions on what they needed, weekly updates with photos, and out of all the charities we looked at this was the one farthest from their goal we felt this was the best place we could help.
Sharing Their Story
*reposted from their crowd-funding site*
India stands amidst the storm of the second potent wave of Covid-19 cases hitting us across the country. With national cases averaging over three hundred thousand (over 3 lakhs), and about 3000 deaths a day - India’s health system is on the verge of a complete collapse.
Countless lives are being lost over the lack of oxygen, the demand for which is ever increasing. Oxygen concentrators ( a medical device that concentrates oxygen from ambient air) are critical to treating patients suffering from mild to moderate effects of Covid-19. Early administration of oxygen significantly improves the condition of the patient leading to faster recovery and thereby, reducing the need for hospitalization.
India United is a volunteer group of entrepreneurs, activists and working professionals hailing from leading institutions- ISB (Indian School of Business), NITK (National Institute of Technology, Surathkal) LSE-UK (London School of Economics), MICA (Mudra Institute of Communications) and LSR (Lady Shri Ram College) - who like many of you- are keen on helping avert this national crisis to our best ability. We have collaborated with Swasti to procure, deliver and distribute oxygen concentrators in areas that need them most. These concentrators will be distributed to verified nonprofits and government institutions working at the grassroots level to help multiple people in their time of need.
