Birmingham Youth Chapter comes up with innovative ideas

The volunteers of the Birmingham Youth Chapter have decided to put up donation boxes at various restaurants and gas stations. In addition to this, it was decided that they would personally visit various restaurants (Indian as well as American) and ask them if they could contribute a dollar from each meal they serve on the 26th of January towards the Ekal cause. The volunteers would help their business by asking people to go out and eat at these restaurants on the 26th Jan as one dollar from each of their meals would be going to the Ekal cause. Also, it was decided to put donation boxes and Ekal flyers on those restaurants and gas stations which agree.
