We are reaching out to you to extend a helping hand to Mullaivanam. Mullaivanam is also known as Tree Man. He has helped to plant more than 50 lakhs trees in various states across India. For his Noble deed, honorable Ex - President of India Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam had gifted him a Tata Ace and a gold medal appreciating his passion, dedication and service. Just Google Mullaivanam Tree Bank and you will find so many videos, news articles and other information about him.
While he is such a celebrated hero and popular man, Mullaivanam is by no means a rich man. He lives in a small 400 sqft room in Chennai, with his aged mother, daughter and son. His house was brought down by Vardha storm in 2016, which he rebuilt with a budget of Rs. 5 Lakhs. Charitable contributions and his own little savings all added up to about 2 lakhs and he had to take a loan for 3 lakhs by mortgaging his Tata Ace and 15 gms Gold Medal.
With his little income, Mullaivanam already struggles to make both ends meet. Yet, he has been making timely interest payments on this loan. He has not used his popularity to make more money, but on the contrary he has used it to create more awareness and help plant more and more trees.
We are creating this fund raiser to help Mullaivanam get back on his feet. While 3 Lakhs is a seemingly small amount, for Mullaivanam it is huge and he faces practical difficulties to take his vehicle out for tree plantations as the mortgager objects to it.
The collected funds will be used to:
1. Settle the loan for the Tata Ace and get the RC book back
2. Settle the loan for the Gold Medal and get it back
3. Any money collected beyond the goal will be used for planting more trees
We request you all to donate generously. Mullaivanam has been helping us indirectly by creating a better environment for our children. His efforts towards this are phenomenal and purely selfless. We are only trying our bit to return the favor.
Thank you and God Bless You!
