Our first initiative, “Say No To Crackers” – 2012, a door-to-door initiative to raise awareness about the hazards of burning crackers, was a huge success and resulted in over 3000 children pledging their support to promote the ‘Say No To Crackers’ campaign.

The third social cause, “He4She” aims at spreading awareness about women’s health and wellness. We supported this cause by running a marathon with a visually challenged girl and, in the process, raised INR 3 lakhs.
