2. Detroit Unaruyir Kalaikoodam Project


I conducted a chess tournament for kids and collected $50 as a fee. Winner received $20 and the balance $30 was donated to Detroit Unaruyir Kalaidoodam.  This organization supports folk artists in Tamilnadu.

In March 2020, when the COVID lock down started in TamilNadu, the livelihood of the folk artists across various districts in TamilNadu were heavily affected.
Through the last several months with the help of each one of you, we have been reaching out to folk artists in several districts in TamilNadu including Dindugal, Erode, Coimbatore, Tiruppur, Theni, Madurai, Salem, Ramanathapuram, Pondicherry to help them survive through this continued crisis.
(Dindugal district alone has more than 7500 full time folk artist families)
