My Promise

As a runner who truly believes in the cause, I pledge to match the donations of those who believe in the cause as well and in me as a person. I will match $1 for every $2 you will contribute upto $1000. Just send me an email with the amount you have donated. How much your dollar is worth ? Every dollar you contribute, pays for 6 days of a kid's education. If you would like to direct your money towards some specific projects supported by Asha's Austin chapter, let me know.
About Asha

The wonderful thing about Asha as a charity organization (for you, me and those children who need us) is that
almost 100% of the money we donate goes directly to Asha's project partners in India. Asha does not have paid members and has a minimal expense related to fundraising. That is why it has figured in the Top-10 charity organizations of Charity Navigator in 2004, an independent charity evaluator with a database of over 3000 charities in US. It still remains one of the highest rated charities in US with a score of 69.79/70.00. It definitely comforts me that my money (and yours) is directly benefiting those who need us most and not to the middlemen.
