During the festive season, we love to be showered with gifts and feel a sense of warmth and love when relatives and friends indulge our every want.
The excitement and joy of unwrapping a present is a feeling we not only enjoy as children but continue to do so as adults.
Unfortunately, there are children in society who have never experienced the joy of unwrapping a gift to find something they have wished for.
To enable you to put a smile on a child’s face by gifting something special, student organisation AIESEC has come out with a novel idea called ‘wish tree’ that enables you to fulfil a child’s wish by buying him or her a gift.
The first ‘wish tree’ was installed at Barista in Pedda Waltair on Sunday.
The students of AIESEC, who volunteer at various schools where underprivileged and special children are taught, found through their interaction that although the NGO that runs the school satisfies the basic needs of education, food, and clothing, the students like any other child their age wish for a lot of things such as toys, bags, balls, bats, and stationery, among others, that they do not have the means to purchase.
The members of AIESEC compiled a list of all the wishes that the students had and put every wish into a white envelope and hung it on a tree with the price of the wish written on it.
A customer can walk in, choose a wish that he would like to fulfil according to his budget, make a donation, and replace the white envelope with a green one that has a smiley drawn on it.
The objective is to turn all the white envelopes into green envelopes as fast as possible, thus fulfilling all the wishes of the children studying in a particular school.
The tree will then move to a different location with the wishes of children from another school hung on it.
Sudhiraj Ghosh, who is one of the organisers, says that the ‘wish tree’ closes the gap between children who are needy and those who want to make a difference in society.
He hopes the concept will catch on, and there will be many wish trees across the city soon.
The envelopes are very affordable and a little generosity will make a huge difference in the lives of children who will be able to experience the warmth of being gifted something they wished for.
Every want of special and underprivileged children are put in white envelopes and hung to the tree with the price
People who want to reach out, may choose to fulfil a wish and make a donation as per their budget
The white envelop is then replaced with a green one with a smiley drawn on it
The objective is to turn all the white envelops into green ones as fast as possible

A girl “HARIKA’ by name with her friends “Aayush, Haarika, Ravi, and Rishi” started a society or a platform whatever you may say , http://www.heros4hope.org in order to support the people who are suffering from the disease of “Cystic Fibrosis”. This is happend because of her own brother “Bharat” is suffering from the same said disease.
ABOUT THE DISEASE :
Cystic Fibrosis is a rare genetic disease. There many thousands of people in the United States with this condition. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (www.cff.org) promotes awareness of Cystic Fibrosis, and raises funds for Cystic Fibrosis related research. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has an annual walk called “Great Strides”. Every year thousands of teams participate in these walks and raise funds to help support the on-going research for finding a cure for this disease. Not long ago, most people with Cystic Fibrosis did not live past their elementary school. Now, many Cystic Fibrosis patients are living normal lives and the median lifespan for people with Cystic Fibrosis is well into the forties.
The statistic that shows that most Cystic Fibrosis patients are in Europe and North America is quite misleading. Most of the Cystic Fibrosis cases are not even diagnosed in India and other countries. As a result, most of the patients with this disease die very young and the real cause would never be known. When we discussed some of the infant deaths in our relative’s families in India, we realized that many of those were never completely diagnosed and many of them had the exact symptoms of genetic diseases like Cystic Fibrosis.
Diseases like Cystic Fibrosis are rare. Even with all the support network and work done by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a vast majority of Americans would not know about this disease. One can imagine what kind of awareness exists in countries like India where this mostly not even diagnosed. Many young lives are lost in countries like India because of lack of awareness, testing, and treatment. When we look at Bharat, we realize how dramatic the improvement can be in the lives of cystic fibrosis patients when they are diagnosed and properly treated for Cystic Fibrosis. Early detection is always the key to a better life for cystic fibrosis patients. Fortunately many states in the U.S. now have legislation to screen all newborns for diseases like Cystic Fibrosis.
