Veer campaign close to target, collects Rs.50 lakh
Veer campaign, an initiative to raise funds to create employment for 1,000 people with disabilities, seems to be quite close to its target - the two-month drive has already collected Rs.50 lakh.
The campaign, a joint initiative by Thumps Up, Salman Khan's Being Human, the American India Foundation, and CNN-IBN, launched Jan 24 with a target to raise at least Rs.75 lakhs.
CNN-IBN and IBN7 have showcased inspiring stories of people with disabilities, who despite various obstacles have managed to achieve success and earn people's respect.
"We at Being Human - the Salman Khan Foundation - thank all those who have supported the Veer initiative. We hope the campaign continues to grow in strength," Alvira Khan, on behalf of Salman Khan's Being Human foundation, said in a statement.
