Jeppiaar School and College institution has been upholding many social causes and been vocalizing issues. Similarly, Jeppiaar School and College football team has donated their cash prize worth 3 lakhs which they had won this academic year towards the surgery of a 5-year-old child, Sharmila. The money donated by Jeppiaar was used to perform an open heart surgery, and helped saving her life.
This is a first in India where an educational institution has come forward to donate their cash prize and save the life of a child. They do not have any personal motive behind this but rather a genuine care for the betterment of people around. It is heart-warming to know that the youngsters from Jeppiaar are coming forward or such social causes.
As we all know of the proverb which says ‘Change cannot be brought out in a single day, but the throw of one stone will cause ripples’. Just as Jeppiaar has started garnering awareness, many more educational institutions should look up and start following. It is not a must to do so but it is time we start giving back to the society in a way we can; it need not be a huge modification, but a small step would be welcome, always!
The ripple of kindness has been started, let us help continue creating ripples!
