    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    'I can't' /'I won't' are the excuses that we have all used in the past, haven't we? In our minds, we have a perception of what we can do or achieve. This defines our boundaries and anything outside those boundaries challenges us.

    But there are some people who not only challenge those boundaries but redefine them every single moment they breathe.

    Meet this amazing team of dancers who are visiting the UK. Jayalakshmi (visually challenged), Usha (visually challenged), Lingaraj (visually challenged), Sridevi (speech and hearing challenged) and Manasa (speech and hearing challenged). This team of 5 artists will tour the UK, showcase their talent and redefine the 'normal' perceptions of what our bodies can or can not do.

    What makes them different is not whether they can see or hear or speak; what makes them different is who they have chosen to be despite the challenges they have. Isn't that inspiring?

    They are supported by an amazing organisation called Samarthanam. Samarthanam means ‘support or empowerment’. Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled aims to support and empower disabled or differently-abled people.

    People, please open your hearts and wallets and give this team a warm welcome here in the UK. This is an opportunity to be part of something big.

    Please visit http://www.samarthanam.org to get more information about the vital work this organisation does.

    Here is a picture of the team as they arrived at the Gatwick Airport earlier today. They are accompanied by Buse Gowda, who is a visually impaired dancer of international repute. They will straight away travel to Stanley; their performances start tomorrow.

    Any questions, please drop a message here and I will be happy to respond.

    With love and best wishes,

    Parul Banka

      This is our fabulous team of artists just before their third performance in the UK. They have performed at Stanley, Wolverhampton and Cardiff on three consecutive days. This picture is from the Cardiff auditorium just before they enthralled the audience with their performance. They are about to start their 4th performance now. Every penny you donate will bring a positive change in the world. Please donate generously. #Bethechangeyouwanttosee, #Charitybeginsathome, #Redefineboundaries
