Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma & Zaheer Khan Join Yuvraj Singh’s Campaign To Educate 100 Cancer-Affected Kids
DesiredWings.com & YouWeCan collaborate for ‘Together We Can’ on World Cancer Day
Indian cricket’s poster boy, Yuvraj Singh who recently made a come-back in the International cricket scene, has now pledged to take his fight against cancer to the people. On the occasion of World Cancer Day he announced ‘Together We Can’ a crowd-funding initiative on DesiredWings.com. The cricketer has pledged his support to raise money through this crowd funding initiative; the money raised will be used for the education of young cancer survivors. Today, the campaign went live on www.desiredwings.com
Money raised will be utilized to give scholarships to 100 children for their primary and higher education. Often, families of these cancer patients and survivors exhaust all their savings during the prolonged treatment and are left with little or no money to fund their children’s education. The idea behind the initiative is to support the education of these young cancer patients and survivors who belong to the underprivileged section of our society and help them in securing their future.
Through the ‘Together We Can’ crowd funding campaign at DesiredWings.com YouWeCan aims to raise 2.5Cr. Rupees. DesiredWings.com is a Crowd Funding platform that brings together High Net Worth Individuals, Creative Individuals, Innovative Enterprises and Impactful Charities to meet the problem solvers of tomorrow who have desires to make a difference by innovation, cause driven projects thereby fulfilling their dreams. As a crowd funding platform, DesiredWings.com has created an ecosystem that connects multiple avenues and stake-holders including various brands, CSR programs, sponsorship opportunities and people willing to help each other to get funded.
World Cup Hero, Yuvraj Singh added “Out of all my centuries I feel the most proud in sponsoring education of 100 cancer affected kids. Join me in batting against cancer and let’s give wings to survivors and contribute on Together We Can Campaign”.
Commenting on the collaboration Shabir Momin, who co-founded DesiredWings.com along with Mohammed Sirajuddin, Varun Chandra and Vikas Sharma, said “It’s a matter of great pride and honour to work with Yuvraj Singh and his foundation ‘YouWeCan’. Lack of money and guidance is a major obstacle and ‘Together We Can’ is aimed at facilitating a bright and secure future for these young Indians. We salute the unflinching spirit of both the children and their parents who are fighting this tough battle every day of their lives. This initiative holds a special place in my heart, having faced the tragedy of losing my 14 year old nephew ‘Zain’ to cancer after a fight of 9-10 years. Through such initiatives and more our vision is to build a network of 100Cr. Rupees worth of projects during our first year of existence. Urging everyone to come together and help build this network on DesiredWings.com.”
Shabnam Singh, mother of Yuvraj Singh said “As a mother, I whole heartedly give my support to patients and their family members. I am blessed to be able to provide scholarships to cancer survivors and making them believe that anything is possible.”
A host of prominent personalities like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma & Sachin Tendulkar have already pledged their support for this campaign along with Yuvraj Singh which will help in raising awareness and funds.
