Welcome to the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation
On May 23, 2015, we will be hosting our 4th charity gala. The proceeds of this year's gala will be donated to The War Amps Child Amputee Program (CHAMP). Created in 1975, the Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program is built on the Winner's Circle philosophy, which encourages child amputees (Champs) to accept their amputations and develop a positive approach to challenges. Please join us and help us give hope, strength and determination to the future of tomorrow, our children.
The Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation was created to spread Hope, Strength and Determination to those in need. Shayam fought a courageous 8-year battle with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) and passed away on Feb 10, 2009 at the age of 40. He lived his life with dignity and courage and the foundation created in his name will forever remember and perpetuate his Hope, Strength and Determination.
It is with sincere gratitude that everyone involved with the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation thanks all those who attended the 2012 Black and White Charity Ball. The gala evening was truly inspirational as well as motivational. Proceeds of the gala were donated to Free the Children, a remarkable organization that empowers young people to be agents of social change, to help free children from poverty and exploitation both locally and abroad.
On August 30, 2012, the generosity of our sponsors and friends enabled the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation to proudly donate $60,000 to Free the Children. These funds will be directed towards implementing leadership and mentorship programs for "at risk" youth in 7-10 schools within the GTA. Our funding dollars will also provide scholarships for 10 - 20 students to take part in the Take Action Academy - a week long, social justice themed camp designed to give young people the leadership skills, confidence and peer support to improve not only themselves, but their world at large.
