GDN Reader's View: Making headlines


There comes a stage in one’s life when one is more or less done with family responsibilities (though this hardly applies to the lady of the house) and looks at the broader perspective of giving back to the world in general and the less fortunate in particular.
I have always tried to do whatever little I could but now want to go a step further and touch more lives.
As such, I am collecting caps – new or ones you don’t need/no longer need – for labourers who toil hard in the sun. (You can even donate money for the same if you like). There are so many of them that I can’t cover all heads by myself – I need your support.

Also airline kits which they appreciate (the eye shades and ear sponges in particular). Just collect them and I will pick them up or get them collected on my return in mid June.

Please also pass the word around and collect as many as you can as ‘Cover my head’ will be an ongoing initiative through the season.

If companies would like to sponsor the same with their names on the caps, they are more than welcome.

Am counting on all golfers as well to ‘pass on their caps’ for my initiative.

Besides, I am also trying to single-handedly carry out another project ‘Quench my thirst’ wherein I put cases of cold juices in my car and pass them around as I drive through construction sites.

If you would rather support that let me know. (I actually want to do so on a larger scale by devoting the afternoon doing just this!)

My all-year round initiative is ‘your extras could be my basics’ wherein I collect everything people no longer need or wish to donate for labourers, ie clothing and anything else in good condition!
