Book Fundraiser 2022 for Page Ahead
Page Ahead recently received a note from a student: “Dear donors, thank you so much for the fun books. These books mean a lot to me because they are good for my brain. And I can get smarter. From Lennon”
Thank you for helping to make that happen to other kids in need who don’t have books of their own. But because of your help, kids in our community will receive new books. Thank you so much!
Thanks for the excellent banana nut muffins! Loved it. Happy to be part of a great cause to contribute to the needy. Proud of the effort you are leading. - Rajan
Thank you for the delicious chocolate chip cookies! The kids loved it and want another order. - Rachita
I’m Ashie, founder of StemChef and the host of StemChef Kids Day that your daughters participated in yesterday. I wanted to reach out to you to acknowledge how amazing your daughters are!
It is very rare to find the excellence they clearly have in them and the down to earth humility in teenagers these days. The wonderful spirit in which they are working tirelessly for their non-profit for a great cause is truly humbling to see. And I believe parenting and upbringing has a lot to do with that. So I want to give you credit for the wonderful daughters you have raised.
While I’m raising money for the other non-profits that I have partnered with through StemChef, I would personally like to donate to Joys of giving and I’ll be in touch with them about where I can do so.
My very best wishes to you and your daughters,
I again want to thank you for such an informative session, my son V thoroughly enjoyed it and learned quite a bit in that. He would love to connect back for any questions or get more ideas on different things he can try. He just got introduced to coding and loving every bit of it.
Thanks once again for such a great effort and helping kids learn coding! Would love to support this great work, in whatever way possible.
It was wonderfully organized
I think you girls were so good at what you did. Keep up the good work!
While answering questions, addressing by participant name .include instructions to premeasure and keep ingredients ready. Else can make it a 1 hour 15 minute session.
I have no suggestions, I loved how you went at a steady pace and you explained each and every step which was very helpful.
It was a lot of fun! Just an idea: Giving kids step by step instructions to follow loudly, pausing and asking them to show the progress might help drive more engagement. :)
Every thing was awesome!
My daughter enjoyed your cookie session and has already made them twice ... her 70 year old grandfather ( my dad) who is visiting us told her that these cookies are the best he has tasted.. kudos to you guys for the great recipe! We would love to sign up for other stuff you come up with also
The Hari siblings Vanesha and Varshini have done several phenomenal things , all at once.
1) They have raised a stupendous amount of $4000 for my homeless, foster and underserved children served by Kinder Konnection.
2) They have baked an insane number of cookies for this fundraiser.
3) They have set the bar very high about what children are truly capable of.
4) They made me forget that am actually writing about two children and not adults.
My heart is filled with gratitude and my eyes with tears when I think of the drops of kindness from donors that have filled the bowl of essential needs.
Shal Hari and Hari Bala Take a bow for you have just shown the world, silently but strongly what it means to raise children of character.
We are forever indebted to these little hands and large hearts.
Many blessings to Varshini and Vanesha who have embraced Kinder konnection and its mission-- Children of the world !
Dear Vaneesha and Varshini,
We’re so happy to see the wonderful work you’re doing, and be beautiful people you’re growing up to be! Congratulations on your creative venture and best wishes! - Dee
