I have been to India four times, and each time I go I fall more in love with the homeless children that I met in a town called Tiruvanamali. Since 2006 I’ve been helping them feed, clothe and shelter the orphaned unwanted children in this town. It has been one of the greatest feelings in the world to see their happy faces when I arrive. I had my 41st birthday party with them, you can see a few photos below! I’ve found such a great love giving to the people of India. Just seeing the IMMENSE gratitude on their faces is life changing. The past few years we’ve helped people donate thousands of dollars to these precious beings in need of attention. I hope you can help as it is truly an amazing sensation to know that you are helping these orphans receive the bare necessities that most people take for granted. The man who runs the shelter goes by the name “Babu” and I stayed with him and we stayed at his house for 2 weeks when I was there for my birthday in February 2011. I’ve seen the work and progress they are doing, and he is a very good soul as he has devoted his entire life to this children, so I am 100% of your money will go to the right place. Here are a few pictures of these orphan Indian children and some other photos from my last trip.
How did this Orphanage Indian connection happen? In 2006 I decided to visit the town of Tiruvannamalai where my spiritual teacher Ramana had sat in a cave for 17 years inside the mountain of Arunachala in the early 1900’s. One day near his ashram in town I was walking down the street and a man came up to me with his hand open and his eyes full of hope. I didn’t think twice when I looked into his sweet humble eyes and handed him 50 rupees (about $1) as he put his hand over his heart, looked me in the eyes and bowed in gratitude. The tears started to flow as I realized this unknown person was giving me more love, gratitude and a feeling of sacredness than I had felt from anyone in years.Just a few hours later, the most wonderful surprise came when I went into an internet facility to check my email. I started talking with the owner who was a young man and he was talking about how he just started a facility to house, clothe and feed the orphaned Indian children there. My heart was sooo open that I could feel how HUGE his heart was, and how deeply he cared for these orphans who were either physically disabled or abandoned by their parents.
This was the day I met Shiva Nadanakumar (or Babu as he likes to be called) and he has provided a home where these orphaned children can sleep, eat and be cared for by adults who donate their time. He provides clothing, medical care, and enabling activities that help them to acquire an education. Here’s a picture of the kids after receiving a few toys from someone with a loving donation!
