“Manish has just single-handedly changed the trajectory of our nonprofit forever. In the pandemic, we lost about 80% of our revenue and 50% of our staff. That meant programs ended and people in need were left behind. That’s hard to say, but sometimes honesty is painful. But now, with Manish’s generosity, we can build new programs in prisons and juvenile detention centers that can help reduce violent crime. Additionally, we are going to hire a mental health professional to increase program effectiveness across the charity.
It is my sincere belief that because I said I would can change the course of human history for the better. If we are still standing 100 years from now, I hope they still talk about what Manish did to ensure our survival after the Pandemic of 2020. Our 2021 continues with hope because people like Manish believe that honesty, self-control, and compassion are integral parts of humanity that we must invest in.”
