Every day is a new beginning and each good word, good thought and good karma can be the starting point of an illustrious journey.

However, it is not that easy. Sometimes you get tired or the road seems too long and there is no end in sight. It has happened with me a few times already and just when I thought I was all alone, someone came along…. unaware of my journey, my past, present or even future… and gave me a smile, a hand, spoke a few good words or even walked with me for a mile or two. And, that has helped me keep marching towards my goal. My experiences have taught me that I am a traveller and I have a long way to go.

What my journey so far has taught me is that we are all travelling and our journeys will be impossible if we don’t help our fellow travellers and return those innumerable acts of kindness in some way or the other. This personal philosophy has brought me to The Funding Network (TFN) – Toronto; an organization that truly believes in enabling entrepreneurs make this world a better place, socially and economically. Passion, commitment, sincerity and creativity are some of the key adjectives that came to mind when I attended an event hosted by the TFN as well as when I met the Board for the first time.

TFN allows charities looking to raise funds share their personal stories, engage with each donor (regardless of the donation amount) and stay connected throughout their life span.
