Heart-warming Story

The San Jose Mercury News has a heart warming story on Foundation For Excellence (FFE) - a silicon valley based charity that helps bright kids in India that can't afford education stay in school, go to college and achieve success.

The best part is that the gift of education transforms not just a single student but their entire family's future. For example -

Growing up in the coastal city of Chennai, Rajee Nair said she and her sister always earned very high marks in school, and each received scholarships from the foundation.

Now the 29-year-old engineer lives in Fremont, where she works as a consultant for Infosys Technologies. She has been able to support the higher education of two younger sisters back in India and even buy her parents a home.

"Their lives are now taken care of,'' she said.

I personally know Rajee - and she is such a positive, bright light in the lives of many. And now she is helping the cause in turn.

So this Holiday Season, please consider making a contribution (click here to donate now).

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!
