NO ! NO ! NO ! NO !
I DID’NT hear wrong.. You dint hear wrong.. Somebody DINT make a jackass out of you… IT happened… !!!
MAD won the Ashoka Awards… YES.. The Ashoka Staples Youth Social Entrepreneurs Award..
When I heard for the first time that we had made it into the final 15, I couldn’t believe it.. Now, a week, and lots of hard work later, here we are.. In the champions circle.. The champions circle, people!!
If you’re a MAD volunteer, stand up, and give yourself a huge pat on the back..
YOU made this happen…. YOU YOU YOU!!
And yes, you too.. :)
But.. The MOST IMPORTANT contributors to our cause were the voters.. Who believed in our project.. And who saw the potential of what we do… And, who carried us through to the end…
It is to them that I’d like to convey my whole hearted thanks, on behalf of the entire MAD community.. This wouldn’t have happened without you..
And I, for one, am eternally grateful for your support… And, I’m sure that every MAD volunteer echoes my feelings…
Also thanks to the bloggers who put our cause up on their sites to promote us.. (Kenney bro, give yourself a big hug, to be replaced with real ones when we meet :) )
Yes, you are reading this.. And IT IS true… So, cry, laugh, scream or jump around, or do whatever you do..
This day is ours people.. This moment is ours…
So you just go on ahead and enjoy… It’s the fruits of your hard work, and your effort, and your choice to Make A Difference…
Go, and Stay MAD always..
– a very euphoric JR. (Who, contrary to popular claims, did NOT cry when the results were announced)
