The awesomeness of Steemit - How a Steemit Initiative Helped Kids in an Indian Village #hendrix22lovesyou

A few days ago I stumbled upon a blog post by @hendrix22 that accidentally appeared on my feed. The post was about power of positivity and how Steemit can be an ambassador of change for the needy ones across the world beyond the barriers of borders or language or caste or creed

Initially I was skeptical and so were others as people in comments section poured in their thoughts. There were talks of scmasters looting the reward pool by taking advantage of this initiative and despite all that talk, @hendrix22 (along with his wife, who I believe is an equal partner in propagating this initiative) stood his ground which was, "to spread positive vibes and help the needy."

He was so sure of his intentions that I decided to take part in it and wrote a long post about it here:

Udayan - A Small School with big aspirations

To summarize the post: It was about a school run by my friend Ajit Singh in a village of India. The kids belong to poor families who can't even afford proper food. Ajit Singh's Udayan not only teaches them kids but also trains them to make them self dependent when they grow up. Computer course, sewing classes etc. are a part of teaching at Udayan.

The post got good traction, and as positive vibes started to spread out, more and more generous people started pouring in. Then @sallybeth23 chipped in, she was so rooted in this idea that she decided to sponsor the winters of kids at the school (blankets and shoes for kids). Though Ajit Singh confirmed that winters being set in already, they had already managed to buy shoes and blankets for kids. But they were looking for food sponsors.

@sallybeth23 sent across the money and I have managed to transfer some part of it to Ajit Singh, while remaining will be done in a couple of days (I will update this post with complete monetary details soon after the final penny is sent to Ajit Singh's account)

10000 INR is equivalent to 159 USD (traded at INR63 per USD). I will transfer the remaining amount in a few days after the bloodbath in crypto is over. The commissions to exchange crypto/USD from wallets to INR is currently too high. In other news, today the crypto market is nosediving :D

Ajit Singh could not record a video but he managed to record a video of kids and I will be sharing it with you in a separate post.

You should. Earlier I used to believe that one shouldn't really market/talk out loud about his/her charity. But of late, I have realized that it is important to propagate positive ideas/vibes. If you're involved in a charity, you can always promote in a subtle way so that more and more people get to know about it and contribute in whichever way they can.

In the age of Internet, one really doesn't know where from an idea can take-off and do wonders for the underprivileged section of your society.

Thank you for your comment :)

Kids have made another video but due to poor connectivity issues at their end, they were unable to send it to me.

Hopefully they'll do it today and when they do, I will let you know as well.

Many thanks for your generosity.
