The next step – Call for action

Art with sunayna” has completed 4 seasons this Mother’s day and is now taken yet another giant step this year.. It has been an amazing feels very good to know that the journey is as unending and expandable as it is rewarding.

We are looking for NGO’s or self help groups who have the manpower and want to raise funds for themselves.

I can teach the volunteers to do everything related to quilling and even have initial sales. Once they are on their feet, they can continue with the sales and be self sufficient.

ImageWho are needed for this to work to be a success?

1 Primarily Ngo’s or self help groups who want to raise funds. It would be ideal if they had volunteers who could make the stuff too

2 volunteers who know paper quilling or want to learn and will teach since I can’t be present everywhere always 🙂 I wish I could though

3 photographers to click pretty pretty pics of the volunteers and ngo’s working and of the sales for the newsletter.

4 Marketing people who can help maintain facebook pages and spread awareness. Can make newletters and banners

5 Accountants who can help keep track of the expenses.

6 Kind people who can donate old wedding cards, beautiful gift boxes and pretty things like that.

6 Corporates who would want to hold the sale in their premises.

7 People who can help with logistics – like buying stuff from crawford market and getting it delivered to a particular NGO.

8 Helpful people who can get us corporate contacts and help out with the sale.

Lastly people everywhere to pray and smile and love spread kindness.

Diwali 2012

Diwali 2012 has been the my best diwali so far. With full bags of diyas and lovely corporates.. it has been a fabulous experience.

This is the most important tool for Art with Sunayna now. This is our paper shredder. This is the generator of our raw material and been able to purchase solely based on our early profit and donation from Sophia Ali and a doc who would like to remain anonymous.

Here are few pics of my kids using it.

Sonam using the shredder for the first time

After sales, we all met at the TL centre for painting diyas and getting ready for the next day sales. a refreshing session after carrying the heavy bags back home

We sell in the morning and paint in the evening. we were short on time and manpower at the TL centre and moved base to Poonam’s house. Her mom generously supplied regular dose of much needed cofffeeeee

Here are pics from our sales. Kids or volunteers from TL accompanied me to the sale

Earring workshop with kids of TL

Every journey starts with a first insignificant looking step. I took mine today. “Art with Sunayna” has a dream to make an entrepreneur out of each creative kid and lady who can’t find better sources of earning money. I taught the kids of ngo – Touching Lives to make the earrings.ImageImageImage

Holi Women’s Day Celebration

Art with Sunayna will soon be changing its operations. Till date, Earrings were made by me and only 20% of the discount was for NGO Touching Lives. Now, there are plans to get the earrings made from people to whom the money helped and give them the complete profit. Your support is always appreciated. Looking out for ideas on the best way for implementation and papers or wedding cards are welcome as always. 🙂

On the beautiful occasion of holi, Pls join me in disposing off the old stock. There are some new color bomb earrings added and all available stock will be sold at discounted rates.

Mail me on for further discussion.
