'Hospitality for Fundraising' : Welcome guests for a cause...
BITSAA International brings to you a novel and innovative way to raise
funds for the BITSIAN initiatives close to our hearts, the first step
for which has been taken by an enthused and a dedicated BITS alumnus -
Nagi. Mr. Ramaswamy Nagarajan aka Nagi
(’61-’66 batch) is based in New South Wales, Australia and is the
BITSAA-Australia Chapter Leader. Nagi has come up with a
unique, novel initiative: He is
extending his hospitality to other BITS Alumni by offering the spare
apartment in his house as a vacation home in return for a contribution
to BITSAA. The money raised through this noble initiative will go
as a donation to the BITSAA General Fund for charitable causes. We
invite you to take inspiration from Mr. Nagarajan. The idea behind this initiative is to build a
more amicable and a well-connected alumni network. It aims at bringing
together – hosts and guests, travelers and locals. The hosts not
only get an opportunity to contribute to the society in an
unconventional way but they also get to interact with other fellow
BITSians. The guests get to travel the world and have a place to stay at
nominal costs. Since this exclusively involves BITSAA registered
alumni, there is guaranteed security for the hosts as well as the
guests. We visualize the future of this initiative as a BITSian
world wide web where every BITSian can go to a different country knowing
that a hospitable Alumnus will house him/her there. If you wish
to be a part of this unique initiative or would like to help us in
making ‘Hospitality for Fundraising’
a success, you can visit - http://www.bitsaa.org/?hospitality. Only registered members
