This summer, I attended the Giving Back Foundation Retreat at Ledgewood in Upstate NY. The Giving Back Foundation is my mom’s non-profit organization. The retreat included speakers, yoga, guided meditation, healthy food, and at the end of the retreat I performed with my cousin Jules Bakshi.
The Giving Back Foundation was established in 2010 by Meera Gandhi as a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization in the USA. Its beneficiaries are carefully selected existing charities around the world, with special emphasis on the education of young women and children in need.
Uplifting and empowering young women and children, addressing illness, poverty and suffering are the primary activities of the Giving Back Foundation, whose motto is, “We are to the universe only as much as we give back to it.”
The Foundation also exists as a platform for debate and discussion, as philanthropic activities continue to evolve around the world.
