masks for everyone

#WishBoard is a project to help causes
which impact peoples' lives through one initiative at a time

About

Distributing masks throughout India

It all started as a wish list by creating a catalogue of meaningful causes to support them than gifting me birthday presents and launched it with an instagram post to help an animal shelter raise funds. Every cause is different from the other and its impact affects variety of recipients. With COVID-19 outbreak, being an immigrant in foreign land made us all realize the value of care, concern, support and feeling of belonging.
That's the beginning of #WishBoard.
Now it operates in the US and in India.
