Debabrata Auro Foundation is immensely grateful to all its donors. Nothing would be possible without them and we thank them for their contribution to this foundation.
I am a clinical cosmetologist based in Pune. Though my profession is to make people look good from outside, I work constantly on myself to be beautiful by heart. I think this selfishness of being a better human being than I was yesterday, motivates me to help
One of the main reasons I help others in need is because they are our fellow human beings and we cannot turn a blind eye. It is not a sin to be poor. If we accept God’s infinite mercy in our lives but refuse to pass it on along to others whether we think they are deserving of it or not, I feel we are the worst hypocrites. The smallest wave is the one that gets you to the shore and similarly I feel a small act of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s life. Seeing a smile on someone’s face is something that makes me feel warm inside. It helps me to connect with people, actually interact with human kind. Whenever I extended a helping hand it has changed me in a way of becoming a better human being and interacting with them helped me realise that they are deeply loved by God and are extremely valuable in His sight. In this world it is a fact that whatever seed you sow, that is the sort of fruit you get.
Compassion and kindness only can bring joy in the lives of those who have lost all hope. The ability and willingness to extend a helping hand, however small, not only acts as a motivator to the needy but also gives a sense of contentment to the benefactor.
One can reach a destination using multiple paths. I have been a regular blood donor for 12 years and know how self-motivating and satisfying it is to be of some help to others. This is another way to have that sense of self-motivation and satisfaction.
I have done my MBBS and MD Anatomy from MGIMS Sewagram. God has given me so many blessings in the form of my profession, family and friends. A small way to thank almighty for what he has done for me. I return it by helping those who are in need.
I moved away from the corporate life to pursue writing, my first love. Late last year, I collaborated on an e-book of short stories published by Amazon. The proceeds from the book were donated to Dalai Lama’s Tibetan Children’s village (TCV).
The realization that I am more privileged, in the sense that I am of sound mind and health, I have had the means to pursue an education and follow a path that I believe in, is perhaps what motivates me to lend a helping hand to those who have been denied either or both.
I am Rupali from Mumbai. When I reach out to help people by contributing a little bit, I get a sense of satisfaction that I am able to make at least a small difference in someone’s life. And especially when you know that your contribution is touted through a right and trusted channel.
