Have you already donated and want to do more? Or are you unable to donate and want to help in another way? Here are some suggestions for ways to help.
Host a Fundraiser
Individual fundraisers are a great way for people to learn about Calcutta Kids. Our fundraisers have ranged from small and intimate dinners to large gatherings with a central theme such as a wine tasting or Indian art. Mira, the volunteer coordinator for our fundraisers in the US, is happy to work with the hosts on everything from the size or theme of the fundraiser, to invitations or tickets, to the elements and timings for the event. When the fundraiser can guarantee at least $5000 for Calcutta Kids, Noah personally attends the fundraisers to give inspirational talks about our work from an on-the-ground perspective. If you are interested in hosting/organizing a fundraiser or for more information, contact Noah at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will introduce you to Mira.
