Chirag mainly caters to those with special needs and disabilities. We intend to use the funds to donate one-hundred tricycles to disabled children, allowing them to experience the exquisiteness of mobility, through a safe and protective method. On average, a tricycle costs $110. In order to be able to donate one-hundred tricycles, Chirag would need to raise $11,000. By receiving funds from several generous donors, Chirag would be able to accomodate the needs of those who have a story to tell.
