On World Dance Day FLY launches Crowdfunding Campaign
“To dance is to FLY” believes Gursimran Taneja; who started FLY Dance Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that provides scholarship training programs to talented young kids from disadvantaged backgrounds. To commemorate the World Dance Day, FLY Dance Foundation launched a crowdfunding campaign onDesiredwings.com. Today the campaign is successfully live at www.desiredwings.com/fly.
While teaching at one of the MCD schools, one of her students, Nupur, asked Gursimran ‘Didi, I love to dance and wish to become Madhuri Dixit. I watch songs on television and try to copy the dance steps and I dance. I don’t know if I can do anything beyond this.’ This instance, that day changed two lives - Gursimran spoke to Nupur’s family and found out that this was a family of limited means and could not afford professional training. A little dream of a little girl and Gursimran’s resolve to help gave birth to FLY Dance Foundation.
To Dance is to FLY, and the belief that anyone regardless of their socioeconomic background can rise through Dance is what makes this organisation so special. India, we all know is a land of unique, vast and untapped talent; FLY helps children who need professional training and opportunities to grow.
On the launch of crowd-funding campaign Gursimran Taneja-Founder, FLY said “FLY is movement of creating leaders. We choose crowdfunding, so that movement reaches people from every walk of life and they get opportunity to choose the way they want to contribute in kids’ lives and in the creation of leaders.”
Teaching values through dance is the mission that drives everyone at FLY. After dance classes, students sit together for a value session and we discuss how we can implement values like integrity, acknowledgement, leadership and responsibility in our lives. We believe that these values will help our students succeed in all areas of their lives.” said Gursimran Taneja.
Speaking on the launch of the campaign Mohammed Sirajuddin, Co-founder of DesiredWings.com said “When I visited FLY and saw these kids dancing, I could feel the impact that FLY is creating. They don’t just dance beautifully they speak really good English too. I could feel the spark in their eyes, they have big dreams, aspiration and somewhere they all know what they want out of life. Through our platform we aim to add wings to their dreams so that they could fly higher and higher.”
For all projects, DesiredWings.com provides valuable pre-launch tips and training along with the required marketing support, promotion on social media throughout the fund-raising lifecycle.
