I am coming to Mumbai on December 15th. I have collected lots of school supplies such as crayons, coloring books, pencils, stencils, staples, notebooks, etc.( A huge suitcase full):) I wanted to bring them to the children I worked with at the Akanksha Foundation. I have found out that the facility that I worked at is no longer running. (Spastic Society at Navi Nagar). I am an American woman just stopping for 10 days on my way to meet my family for the holidays. I am looking for a needy school or orphanage to donate these supplies to, and thought you might be able to direct me. I am very familiar with Mumbai and the Indian cultures, as I came for 3 months on my last visit, and have been there many times. I would also very much like to volunteer my experience during my stay, even though it is such a short visit. If you could put me in contact with an organazation that could use 10 days of my full time, and some supplies, I would be most appreciative. (I am particuarly interested in working with babies/children/women) I will be staying at the YWCA in Colaba from December 15th until the 24 th. Please contact me if you need my VT or any other information.

|Seven-year-old Mehak Khanna, a resident of Lokhandwala, is proud of herself. While kids her age hoard toys, she has given one of her favourite Barbie dolls to
Toy Bank — an organisation that collects toys from kids who are willing to donate them and gives them to the needy kids.
The toy donation has pleased Mehak’s mother, Charu Khanna too. She says, “There are four kids in our family and there are many toys which the kids don’t need anymore. They have outgrown them. I am happy that they will be useful to some other kid.”
Toy Bank is the brainchild of Andheri resident Shweta Gopal (23), Vikhroli resident Swati Rumde (21) and Malad resident Sunisha Kunjappan (24).
They started three months ago by making the rounds of Andheri and Malad, knocking on the doors and asking people to donate toys.
The trio came up with the idea when Shweta decided that she had to do something about her old toys. “That’s when we decided to do something in a more organised fashion,” says Sunisha.
Then began the calls, the emails and the networking. And they didn’t have to ask for more. “People were so helpful. We didn’t hope to get such good response,” adds the 24-year-old copywriter Sunisha.
One such helpful resident is Shalini Kanchandani, who runs a beauty salon at Lokhandwala. She has already donated a bagful of toys, while her daughter Ekta is collecting some more.
Toy Bank plans to collect toys till Nov 14. “We plan to involve schools and colleges in our drive,” adds Shweta.
To donate toys, call Sunisha on 9820856315 or Swati on 9821352836 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
You can also drop your toy in the donation box at St Blaise Church, Amboli.

is no brief candle to me. It's a sort of splendid torch which I've got to
hold up for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible
before handing it on to future generations."
