Throughout our lives, we have been constantly reminded about how lucky we are: to have been born in the United States with many opportunities, to have parents who taught us about humility, sacrifice and hard work, to have supportive friends and family members, and mentors who reached out and guided us. We are so grateful for all that we have.
To commemorate our wedding, in lieu of any gifts, please consider donating to one of our favorite charities to help us share our joy with others more in need. Below are brief descriptions of the charities we've chosen and why we’ve selected them:
Mary’s Center for Maternal & Child Care, Inc. is a Community Health Center that provides health care, family literacy and social services to underserved individuals from over 50 countries who reside in the DC metropolitan region using a holistic approach. Silpa got a chance to work with Mary's Center while she was in college, and has been impressed with it’s mission and how it integrates itself in each community it works with ever since!
Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation of USA is a non-profit organization on a mission to bring basic education to every child across rural India. Given his father's involvement in the organization, Pushpak was able to visit one of the school's in India and saw first-hand how education can uplift disadvantaged children. Ekal serves as a reminder of how grateful he is for his own educational opportunities!
Thank you for your donation!
