#Love #Happiness #Smile
Love! We always get mesmerized by the language of love they speak!
Happiness! Their happiness makes our inner consciousness enlightened!
Smile! We feel blessed for becoming an instrument to make a smile happen, which appears like a zephyr in the life’s darkness they’re being through.

We’re 5 years old.. Nostalgia, the long five years. Pains, struggles, fights, happiness, achievements and what not : however today we stand as a respectful brand in the society. People trusts us. We showed the public that community service stands more than what we call philanthropy, showing empathy and sympathy and giving donations. Thanks to everyone who stood, is standing and will stand with us. We all believe and trust each other and this positivity makes outreaches happy and that makes us *Helping Brainz*
Today also being my dad’s birthday, I wish to say one line he told me when he came to know about Helping Brainz (after two years of start), *we rise by lifting others*.
Thank you 🙂
Yedhu Krishna Menon, HelpingBrainz
It’s hard to write about what Helping Brainz experienced today at Ramraj Seva Kendra (Orphanage), however in our journey to develop this nation – we turned a page with a certain level of satisfaction when WE made them feel that they are not alone in their lonely world of silence, sharing infinite amount love and happiness.
Helping Brainz conducted Ujjwal – A Day with Chotus at Ramraj Seva Kendra Orphanage, Sahibabad. As usual Ujjwal consisted of Paint Your Dreams painting competition, School Stationery and One Time Meal Distribution, Dental Campaigns, Healthcare Campaign, Game Shows and lots of happiness. Around 35 children from the Orphanage painted their dreams with Helping Brainz.
School stationery items were donated by Bhuwan Chandra and Team from Ameriprise Financials, Gurgaon; Meals were sponsored by Mrs. Monika Ghosh, Gagandeep Kaur and Dr.Renu Verma. Gifts were sponsored by Rajesh Kumar Ahuja. The best painter was awarded a special prize from Ramsons Locks.

We thank everyone who made a difference today.
Imbibing respect for the old age among the youth is one of the key aspect Helping Brainz focuses on. Young Helping Brainz mates from the engineering colleges of Meerut conducted an old age home visit near Shopprix Mall, #Meerut on Father’s day. Well it’s a Helping Brainz culture to celebrate the ‘days’ with the abandoned and orphaned.
Our teammates from Meerut spent an entire day ”stretching the wrinkles”, “cooking food for them”, “sharing and hearing stories” and “making a difference”. A Dental Campaign was orchestrated along with the same.
People who contributed were @Harshit Gupta, Eklavya Agarwal, Utsav Anand, Mansi Gupta, Prakriti Jain and Satyam Kumar.
Our grandparents come and stay with us, and we definitely feel the affection. Think about those grandmas and grandpas who really want to be with their grandchildren however are caged within the walls of an old age home, with no one to share and care for them. Well old age homes and the people who cage them are still a mystery!
HelpingBrainz.Org’s Elderly Care team to show its commitment towards the senior citizens of the country and in its mission to improve the lives of the elderly by providing companionship visited Sai Sahara Old Age home located near Rajendra Place metro station.

Though we boast to be great planners, community service and nation building being a passion in each one of us – we do the same in the most relaxed manner, thus the plans to spend our weekends with the kids from Deepalaya and to make an Ujjwal out of it. Thanks to Mr.Madhusudhanan Menon from Deepalaya , who gave us a space to be a reason for their smile.

When the world was “celebrating a colourful Holi” and “worrying about platelet donations”, a young gentleman “Vineeth P. Sethu” from west Delhi thought of donating his platelets for a patient admitted in Action Balaji Hospital, Paschim Vihar. Though a regular donor, however someone who donated his platelets for the first time – didn’t step back and a waste a single minute when he was asked to do so. When asked how he felt, he just smiled and said ‘he enjoyed the music in the lab’ and post his donation he asked the Lab Assistant, whether he could donate his blood/platelets in next 72 hours. We salute bravehearts like Vineeth who is indeed an inspiration. Vineeth is interested to join the Helping Brainz’s blood donation team to help the needy.
Akanksha Singh Mattoo donated blood to a Cancer patient on 11th March, 2017. At the outset, she was quite afraid as this was her first time, but yet again like always, she soon realised that its nothing but just 20 mins that the entire process takes, and the satisfaction hence achieved is unparalleled! She met the patient’s wife and both were overwhelmed of each other’s gesture. What people like Akanksha do, empowers women! Also, thanks to Sonal Singh for proactively being ready to donate. Thanks to both of you, for being awesome!
#WomensDay never ends, it was yesterday, it is today and it will forever be!
Ankita Srivastava, on the 10th of February donated a unit of blood to a mother, a wife and a grandmother admitted in ICU, Max Hospital. The recipient was critical and donors were being searched for, by HelpingBrainz.
Ankita, who had never earlier donated blood, volunteered to do this time and albeit is a warrior was however a bit nervous (still cheerful) that day.
Once she was under the process of bleeding, she never knew when did it all finish and never felt a tad pain. She was very happy and excited to have donated blood and wondered all the way back to her office as to why is blood donation not able to suffice the blood requirements when it just needs 20 minutes of a donor’s time and no cons at all.
We salute you for the courage that you showed and hope people learn from you.
