The world's most groundbreaking, innovative medical, social, NGO and creative causes can thrive with your ability to take action. For instance, achieving a goal amount as huge as Rs. 16 crores for Teera was only possible because of inspired changemakers, who came forward to support, donate and make a difference. As such, ImpactGuru has dedicated January to be the month of gratitude and start off 2022 on the right note.




ImpactGuru’s campaigners want to thank the 20+ Lakh donor community on our platform who continue to promote a world where helping is second nature. To everyone who has donated to a fundraiser, shared it with their circle or been moved by it, we thank you. To date, ImpactGuru donors have assisted patients, inventors, frontline workers, farmers, the youth and many, many others from different walks of life in making the world a better place — for all of us.


Here are some heartwarming success stories about patients who received medical treatment thanks to the generosity of donors: –


  1. Little Devansh underwent a life-saving surgery thanks to the generosity of donors




Devansh’s mother had already suffered two miscarriages before so the birth of her son was like a miracle to her. Everything was going smoothly until suddenly one day Devansh started crying relentlessly and no amount of cajoling could get him to stop. The young parents rushed him to the nearest hospital to find out what was wrong. The doctor told them that there were two holes in the little boy’s heart. Two surgeries were needed to fix the holes in the young one’s heart, one of which alone cost Rs. 3.45 Lakhs. The family started a fundraiser on ImpactGuru which made Devansh's life-saving surgery possible thanks to the generosity of donors online!


Here is what Devansh’s overjoyed parent had to say,

 

“Dear Donors,
Thank you for believing that my son is worthy of a life. With your financial support, I was able to afford timely treatment for my precious son. He is 14 months old now and has bravely been through two heart surgeries. My wife and I look forward to a better future. We are extremely grateful to you for your support and kindness. You are a blessing in our lives!”

 

  1. Thanks To Your Support, Vada Pav Seller K Subramaniam Lives!



A vada pav stall owner’s young son from Mumbai, was under immense pressure over the last couple of months, as his father Mr K Subramaniam’s health was critical. 

 

Committed to help no matter what, donors from all over came together to help! They helped the family raise Rs 4 lakh for Mr K Subramaniam’s angioplasty and bypass surgery which were urgently needed to clear the blockage in his arteries. Today, Mr K Subramaniam has undergone his life-saving treatment and is recovering at home. He says he has newfound faith in humanity, and thanks everyone who supported him, from the bottom of his heart. Here is a message from his son,

 

“We are amongst the people who can’t take out a loan or get health insurance. We live off our daily earnings. Such a crowdfunding platform like ImpactGuru can prove to be a lifesaver for many others who share my situation. Thank you, ImpactGuru!”

The kindness and support of generous donors like you enable us to continue doing our best every day. Today, lakhs of people in India are in danger of losing more and more lives to treatable critical illnesses owing to the inaccessibility of quality healthcare. The worst part is that, despite the fact that these illnesses are treatable, patients are unable to receive medical treatment on time due to a lack of funds. This is why ImpactGuru envisions revolutionizing giving by launching its monthly donations’ subscription. 


Monthly donations are becoming popular among crowdfunding platforms and donors. If you're wondering why, it's because when you donate on a monthly basis, you become a member of an organization's exclusive community of dedicated changemakers who wish to make a sizable impact. The organisation appreciates your involvement, you get to see where and how your money is spent while also receiving tax benefits that help you continue doing this good work.


We know you want to help make a difference which is why we are introducing our recurring donation plan, perfectly created to make monthly donations easy and convenient for you.
