Hello! I’m Ayush, a ninth grader at Rye Country Day School.
Each year, I organize the Children Helping Children Benefit Concert with performances by accomplished and gifted children. Our goal is to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives through music. I was initially motivated to start a benefit after a close friend of mine was diagnosed with leukemia, but as I researched and set up last year’s concert, I learned of many other people’s pain and struggles. I listened to heartfelt stories from people, and, through hard work, dedication, and the kindness of people’s hearts, we raised over $25,000 over the last two years to help fund research and hospital care with the ultimate goal of saving lives.
In 2021, as we navigate these uncertain and unprecedented times, I felt it was more important than ever to do what I could to help children in need. With that in mind, we took a more global perspective and partnered up with the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) to support their mission of ensuring that no child suffers needlessly. Children who are passionate about both music and community service will use what we have, the gift of music, to help raise money for children in need around the world. I hope you'll join us in our effort to turn this vision into a reality.
All gifts, no matter how big or small, will make a tremendous difference. Your gift means so much to me and even more to so many others who depend on the work UNICEF does, working in the toughest of places to reach the most disadvantaged children and adolescents – and to protect the rights of children, everywhere. Thank you for your support.
