Dear Patrons/Volunteers/Supporters,

"We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do." ~ Mother Theresa

It has been a great pleasure to have been associated with you through The “Unlock Smiles” campaign initiated by Dream A Dream.  Through this campaign we have been able to unlock 4667 smiles translating to a fund inflow of Rs. 9,33,400/-. This supports the life skills education of 389 young people for an entire year. We have had several feelings throughout this journey – inspiration, difficulty, happiness , optimistic, amazed, overjoyed, rewarding, ecstatic, thankful, spirited, touched, perplexed, courageous, loved and plenty more.

We take away a lot of learning and good friends for life.  We hope that you have had positive emotions triggered when contributing to the “Unlock smiles” campaign.  It was only with incredible support from the volunteers in the campaign and several out of the box ideas we introduced to make it fun for the facilitators and the contributors, you might have been reached as a  participant in one of the events listed below–

  1. “Bake Sale" at Trio International School
  2. “Smiley at your desk" in Oracle (Lexington office).
  3. “Tour De Smiles" – cycling event.
  4. “Quiz your way to Smiles" at Doff pub.
  5. “Dedicate a Smile" for Women’s day.
  6. Tied up with Lagori the rock band for Sunday Soul Sante.
  7. Corporate promotions by VMware & Microsoft  who sent internal mails to promote the event.

We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for being there with us and hope that you will be associated with Dream A Dream in an active or passive form even in the distant future.

We encourage you to continue contributing when you have a reason to celebrate, dedicate a gift to someone you love, just want to do something different, spread the word with your friends.  The “UnlockSmiles” online payment gateway & website will be kept open through this year in anticipation of reaching our target of 10,000 smiles.

With Dreams,

Dream Team
