NYGF update notice:
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thank you so much for your wonderful contributions towards the New Year Gift Festival, that are still trickling in. We are so close to the goal!
If some of you, however, are wondering why the gift festival hasn’t begun yet?, here is why: The weather here in Vrindavan is really cold at the moment, because of that the government has shut down all the schools in the area, including us. The next proposed date of school opening is 15th of January, 2014. If there are no further changes from the government, the gift festival will be done shorty after the schools are open. We will keep you updated. Amongst all this however, the school closure bought us some more time to hit our target! Please tell your friends and family that they still have time to gift a smile to someone this new year!
We are waiting for the festival as eagerly as the kids are!! Aren’t you?

FFLV New Year Gift Festival its here again. Thousands of very poor children every year on the first of January receive a gift pack from us. Last year we did 5,000 gift packs. This year we hope we can do the same.
It cost US$ 6 for a gift pack, which includes a school bag, pencil, sharpener, toothbrush and toothpaste, a ball, chocolate, toffees and biscuit, a woolly hat for the coming winter and some hope…
It is this time of the year again when we call upon you to help us gift smiles to Vrindavan’s poorest children. You know very well, we are their only hope!
During this festive period, giving is on everyone’s mind, making someone happy is a treasure to share. And it’s only a $6! We are not asking for the moon, just your pocket change to make a poor child happy, like he has never been before.
Send in your contribution today and please forward this message to anyone you know. We are confident that with your help we can do it again this year.
Yours in service of Vrindavan poor children
