People from all over the world have come forward and supported us in this initiative. This began as a simple idea to send powerbanks to the people trapped in Chennai and to the rescuers, but within 48 hours, it snowballed into something larger than life. We have dispatched 6 teams now to Chennai, Cuddalore and other areas that are heavily affected. We have dispatched food, blankets, clothes, powerbanks, medicine, sanitary napkins, raincoats and other essentials. We put out a desperate call for volunteers today in our Indiranagar office and over 50 people responded within 20 minutes. We are thrilled, excited, and happy that our little idea has taken a shape of its own and has the whole world involved.
We thank each and every one associated with this initiative – the volunteers, the brave souls who came forward and offered to drive down with the supplies, the media channels and publications for giving us the much-needed reach and every one of you who sponsored, donated and shared. We love you. We think you are the best people in the whole wide world.
Brave New World, as a company, has always believed that it stands for something bigger and better. We now know that it’s true. We will continue doing this for as long as there’s need. And we hope for your continued support!
We sincerely hope that the situation down south improves and improves quickly. We hope the rescuers have been able to get the relief materials to the people in need. We hope that the sun will shine tomorrow. For now, this is Brave New World, signing off Day 2. See you all on Day 3.
