Shriya - Update

Dear Friends! 

Just a little post here to update you all about the SaveShriya campaign launched by Fortis Foundation. 

Tweets 14,621
Re-Tweets 3617
Total Tweets 18,238

Which means that Fortis foundation will contribute INR 1,82,380/- for Shriya. It translates to 2 months of ERT for her. Which is a big help for Jaydeep and Shivani!

All these tweets were generated in just about 15 days - through word of mouth, through a friend re-tweeting and then another friend re-re-tweeting, through people like Aman sir and Deepak Singh making it their mission to sit the whole night to tweet for Shirya, through celebs like Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, Sandhya Mridul tweeting and spreading the word to hundreds of others! It was all made possible by people like you and me.  

And I want to thank everyone who read about Shriya here on my blog and cared enough to do something for her. Thank you and you should know that you are a star!!

And finally I appeal you all once again to not forget about Shriya. She needs the ERT (each ERT costs INR 90,000/-) twice every month for at least another 15 years. Keep tweeting, keep mailing and keep talking about Shirya when you can, where you can. And when you have a little more cash, please do not hesitate in helping financially as well. It is a little girl's life at stake!

Take care and God bless!
