It is both a pleasure and an honor to inform you that the Indian Community in the United States is very close to experiencing a historic moment through the House of India (HOI) project. After waiting nearly ten years, HOI along with nine other countries, will begin the construction of a cottage in the next few months in Balboa Park, America’s largest urban cultural park (http://www.balboapark.org/). HOI is a pioneering project that was started ten years ago to create a greater awareness of India’s rich and varied culture to over 12 million international and national visitors who visit this historic park. This is the first initiative of its kind in the United States and is generously supported by the City of San Diego which has assigned land to India and nine other countries to build cottages that represent each of their countries. Through the House of India cottage, we will be showcasing Indian art, history, culture, traditions, heritage, folklore, music, dance and ethnic food. Coexisting with cottages from the nine other new countries and 19 other countries who have already built cottages in Balboa Park, HOI will engage in promoting universal peace, multicultural goodwill, and understanding amongst global citizens.
We are counting on the generosity of non-Indians and people of Indian Origin to make this dream of building a House of India cottage a reality. We have raised $300,000 of the $500,000 needed to build the cottage.
There are over 2.4 million Indians living in the United States. Even if 10% of Indians contribute $3 each, we can complete the construction of the cottage. Please consider donating whatever amount is comfortable for you. Every Dollar Counts!! Every Brick will lay a strong foundation for leaving a legacy of the Indian Community in a historical park in the nation. For more information, you can email email@example.com
