The Young Chronicle: For Grade 3 May 16th, 2015 - Page 3
Four Wonder kids Vaibhav, Tanisha, Karan, and Shaurya have been doing an amazing job selling self-made Scooby strings, rubber-bands, loom bands and hand bands,
to raise money for Nepal Earthquake Victims in DLF Phase 1, Gurgaon. Look up
https://www.facebook.com/thingsbykids.forkids?fref=ts to be abreast with their efforts. We did a short interview with the kids and found it very inspiring. Here are the
What is the Initiative all about?
Well, we make simple things like Scooby
strings, rubber-bands, loom bands and hand
bands and sell them to shop keepers, neighbours, friends, teachers, and family, to raise
money for the poor and needy. We have been
doing this for around a year. Just recently we
bought a table fan out of the money raised, for a
maid servant whose husband was very ill. This
year, we thought it would be best to raise money
for hose impacted by the Nepal Earthquake.
What inspired you to run this initiative?
We can’t see poverty. In fact we dream of an India where everyone is equal and has
access to a basic quality of life.
How do you manage this work with studies?
Studies are our first priority we never compromise on studies. Nothing takes over
studies. We use our free time to make things and sell them to raise money.
What’s the one inspiring thing you would like to tell other children?
Well, all us children should work towards helping the poor and India. We should ensure no one is poor and everyone gets three square meals a day. We need to ensure
that no one is extremely rich nor poor. This gap needs to be bridged.
The Young Chronicle Earthquake Relief Campaign
Inspired by this initiative, The Young Chronicle decided to take this to a nation wide level. So
here's encouraging you kids to start an initiative like this in your locality, and do something
which helps you learn how to make new things and also helps you raise money for a good
cause. Here's what you need to do:
Step 1: Make 10 products

Step 3: Once you have more than Rs. 100 collected, log on
Step 4: Ask Mu mma/Papa to donate an amount equivalent to that you have earned, on the
