How does it feel when you had a long tiring day at work and come back home to no food? Isn’t it a terrible feeling? This story is about those kids who go to sleep hungry.
It is a safe bet that Ice Hockey in India is not the subject of many dinner table conversations. Outside of a few regions in the North anyway. When the Ice Hockey team of India could not secure funding from the government, they realized that they loved this sport too much to give up. So they decided to try to crowdfund their shortfall by starting a campaign on BitGiving.
The Ice Hockey campaign team started tweeting about it from their personal account. The story was a compelling one. That an Indian team has to as many newspapers put it “beg” for money, was unacceptable. That image was a disconcerting one. And it found resonance in many people.
On the first day, the hashtag #SupportIceHockey grew and started accommodating more and more conversations about this. The support and the outrage started pouring in.
