Smile Donor’s first fundraising event, Bollywood Night 2017 was a huge hit. In fact we were SOLD OUT and had to close ticket sales 24 hours prior to the event. A very heartfelt thank you to everyone for supporting us through this journey.
At the event, we presented the audience with a brief summary of our newest project in Odisha that we are currently trying to raise funds for. The event helped us raise 75% of our funds requirement and we still need help raising $7,000 more in order to complete this project and give these kids a life they deserve.
Here are additional details on the project. We hope that you would find it in yourselves to open your hearts and donate generously to our campaign.
Radha Krishna Balashram located in Boudh district of Odisha was established in 1979. It is currently run by the Founder, Raghunath Mishra. At present it houses 35 boys and 42 girls of which 21 are orphans, 50 are left by parents who could not take care of them and 6 were abandoned at Collector’s office or hospitals.
As the accompanying pictures would support, the orphanage is in a very dilapidated condition. Their immediate need is a perimeter wall of 140 feet and an internal wall (for privacy of girls) of 25 feet. We would also need your support to build a hygienic kitchen and bathrooms for these kids.
This organization has been vetted internally by the Smile Donor team. The project will also be overseen by team of volunteers onsite lead by one of the team member’s father.

If you any questions on the project, please contact Raj Khillan at rajneek@smiledonor.org or call +1 (318) 805-3884.

We sincerely hope that you will join us in reaching our fundraising goal.
