Subject: We are counting on you for this challenge!

At Akshaya Patra, we welcome challenges. Not only do they teach us to
welcome the unknown, but they also show us a way to excel beyond what
we have imagined. And what is wonderful about every challenge we have
faced is the way our donors and supporters come together, to rise up
to the task at hand. A big thank you to you!

Today, as we enroll as a charity on the GlobalGiving website, we face
yet another test. To be considered as an eligible charity on this
site, we must raise $4000 from 50 donors, in a month's time. This is a
first for us. Difficult it may be, but with supporters such as you, we
know it's certainly not impossible!

We urge you to come forward and lend us a helping hand in this endeavor.

Please visit the GlobalGiving website and donate generously for free,
unlimited food for education. Your contribution will play a
significant role is assuring us registration and visibility on this
site, which in turn is a gateway to a worldwide supporter base.
Additionally, if your efforts ensure that we are classified as a top
fundraising project, we will stand to receive a bonus from
GlobalGiving. Each dollar of contribution secured from here can, in
turn, transform the lives of many school-going children, who will
receive a wholesome midday meal everyday.
