Your Network is Your Net Worth

We aspire to perspire.
Perspire to inspire.
Inspire to empower.
We are the Underdogs.

Unite to get things done! This simple belief motivated us to take up the Oxfam Trailwalker India challenge. Initially, we were a bit late in registering our team, but our commitment was strong. From then on, we have only looked back to see who’s following us. The results have been warmly encouraging!

With every step we take, the challenge of pushing ourselves together as a team towards the cherished goal of empowering underprivileged children provided the required horsepower. From then on, the whole process of signing up, raising the fund, garnering support, and the excitement of our preparatory walks keeps the thrill alive!

How did we cross the initial fundraising hurdle? Here are some tips:

* Believe that your “network” is your “net worth”

* Be persistent in your follow-up conversations

* Take a multi-channel approach (mail, social channels) and approach friends and family, colleagues and acquaintances – after all, the cause is great!

* Lastly, show your sincere belief in making the world a better place to live in

Now, we look forward to starting our journey, and smiling – not when we reach the 100-km milestone within 48 hours – but when we meet our ultimate goal of “Challenging Inequality” with this small effort of uniting to gets things done. Please follow our progress here:
