NetIP launches “Charity is Colorblind”

March 24, 2012

Every once in awhile, there is a story that really warms the heart here at SAPP.  NetIP (Network of Indian Professionals) brings back fond memories for me – sharing good times with friends from the Boston chapter, and meeting new young professionals from the New York chapter as a law intern.  All this from over a decade ago, but you get the picture…

So I was delighted to read that NetIP North America is launching a charity campaign at all of their chapters across the country, entitled “Charity is Colorblind” (CiC)!  Building on NetIP-Chicago’s success with “Cancer is Colorblind” (which raised more than $100,000), all of the NetIP chapters are getting involved now, and focusing their giving on the theme of education.  Here’s an excerpt from their blog post about the launch:

CiC has taken off this year because it is contagious.  It’s contagious because not only is charitable giving an emotional giving, it is also one that keeps on giving back…

This year, many chapters are planning large scale CiC campaigns (many with an education focus), which support a diversity of beneficiaries across the globe including UNICEF, Chicago Public Schools (CPS),  Bal Daan, Teach for America, Nanubhai Education Foundation, and much more.  Due to overwhelming chapter support, our 2012 CiC goal is to raise over $250,000 across all 23 chapters benefiting causes and charities all around the globe, even for people who want to know how to become a real estate agent.

We at SAPP applaud NetIP for their efforts and encourage all of you to get involved.  If any NetIP members out there want to write to us about their experiences of participating in CiC, we’d love to share your stories with our readers!
