The Joy Of Giving
We believe it’s not always the money that you can give. Giving your time makes a huge difference in the world too. Volunteering and spending time with those in need can bring smiles on their faces and yours too!
Through our initiatives, we’ve pledged to make a difference in this world, one step at a time. Every season team SCULPTASSE actively participates in CSR activities and initiatives. We spread the joy giving and receive huge participation from our clients. We actively collaborate with NGOs and social bodies (SEED Foundation India, Titli, Vidya, Sikshagram, Toy Bank) to provide basic needs to the underprivileged and collectively work towards bringing smiles and joy back into the lives of the needy.
Funds for Cancer Surgery - Help Belamati fight Cancer
The world comes crashing down for the ones struck with Cancer. The families are devastated too. And it seems like the world’s end to those who do not enough money for treatment or live in poverty. Meet our patient, Belamati, a sweet elderly lady. She is suffering from Basal Cell Carcinoma, involving Nasolabial and Left Lower eyelid, since a year. She does not have money to pay for her surgery and this disease is now spreading all over her face. If it’s not treated now, her face will be completely damaged and the cancer will spread further in her body. Luckily, Sculptasse found a noble doctor who agreed to do the surgery for free. We only needed funds for her hospitalisation, tests and restorative plastic surgery. With the help of many kind souls, we generated INR 2 Lakhs and got her surgery done successfully. She’s back at her home in Himachal Pradesh now and recovering.
Fund Raising for Brain Surgery
God always helps the kind and good. We happened to come across one such soul, Mr Louis Gabriel Rodrigues. He is survived by a daughter and a grandchild. He had to undergo a Brain Surgery in Holy Family Hospital in Bandra. And his family was not in a position to be able to pay hospital bills, as the total expenses were amounting to almost INR 2 Lakhs. The founder of Sculptasse along with our generous clients donated INR 60,000/-.We are humbled by such contributions and gestures. Indeed, the good still exists in us.

Umbrella Donation Drive- Help a child study this monsoon
The rains do not treat everyone equally. Not everyone is happy at the sight of a sudden downpour than brings their world to a standstill. The young students at SEED Foundation India think the same. These children cannot afford an umbrella and are forced to miss school because the rain makes their journey to school damp and dangerous. The roads are slippery and muddy. And even if somehow they make an effort to get to the school, they’re often stalled by the rains and get late. Sculptasse and our clients help these kids by donating umbrellas. Each umbrella costs only INR 300/-. A small amount but it definitely made a huge difference to the children. Let rains not come in between these children and their education.

A Road Trip dedicated to the widows of Varanasi, 2017- India
To make an impact, team Sculptasse along with a few clients embarked on a road trip to Varanasi to create awareness about and celebrate Diwali with the widows of Varanasi. Widowed at an early age, they’re abandoned here by their families to spend the rest of their lives, in isolation and loneliness. Some spend over 70 years, waiting to rest in their final abode. Not much is known to the world, but in this small town are forgotten people who long for love, happiness and some company. This is what we brought to them on Diwali. Team Sculptasse spent a couple of days with them, talking to them and hearing their stories. And from the funds raised through the campaign, we also donated blankets to them.
A Day at the Theme Park, 2017 - Sikshangram, A Shelter for Children, India

Rescued a Girl Child, 2016 – India
The world is modernizing every day, education is accessible, and information is wide spread. But even is this ever growing and flourishing world, some people still exist who are regressive. With feminism growing and people fighting for equal rights, we still have parents who do not want a girl child. In a heart wrenching incident, an infant was found abandoned in a garbage bin in a neighboring city. Shivani Patel, founder of Sculptasse was quick to act and rescue the girl child at once. We took her to an NGO and provided all the supplies needed to nurse her back to good health. Once healthy, she smiled again. It breaks our heart to know someone would abandon such a beautiful smile.

To be a part of a cause as beautiful as this, Team Sculptasse donated basic medical supplies. We often don’t realize this but certain things that come to us easily, are privilege for some. A small, kind gesture can change lives!
Nepal Flood Relief, SEEDS India, 2015 – India

Zumbathon, World Disability Week, G.O.D.S Foundation, 2014 – India
“There is no greater disability in the society, than the inability to see a person as more” The greatest obstacle people with special needs face is the ignorance and apathy of other people. To create awareness and to remind everyone else about compassion, Sculptasse organized a Zumbathon, a fund raising event as a part of the Think Beyond’s awareness drive. The funds raised via this drive were donated to G.O.D.S, a foundation dedicated to the service of the differently abled, and aims at providing them a life with self-esteem and dignity.
Toy Donation Drive, ToyBank, 2013 - India
When we picture a happy child, we usually see an image of a child playing with a toy, giggling and laughing. But what we don’t realize is that not every child is entitled to this “privilege” of a toy, a simple thing that manages to bring so much joy in the life of a kid. And with so many toys usually lying around in our houses from the beginning, we have often forgotten their value too. To make less fortunate kids happy, we organized a toy donation drive, where we collected as many toys as possible from various sources and donated them to Toy Bank, an NGO dedicated to address the developmental needs among underprivileged kids through games, toys and play.
Book Donation, Titli, 2013 –Gantar, Vadodara, India
For many underprivileged kids who want to study, these basic necessities too aren’t available. And the tender age is when the minds shape. To help these minds stay on the right path and not go astray, the right kind of education is crucial. A small step, like donating books, brings about a huge change in their lives. In another initiative to make this world a beautiful place for those less fortunate, Sculptasse donated books, stationery supplies and other school related reading material.
