If you’re a Dilliwallah or an animal-lover, it would be a crime not knowing what Friendicoes is.
Being the largest and the oldest animal shelter in Delhi, Friendicoes is home to over 500 dogs, cats, horses and elephants. You see a stray dog in pain, you call Friendicoes. Your pet needs help at an odd hour, you call Friendicoes. That is the legacy this much-loved shelter has.
Facebook tells me that my last post in 2014 was hoping that this year was as amazing as it promised to be. I was excited. 2015 was the year when I had decided to take on the challenge of heading BitGiving.
I think the first time someone called me an entrepreneur was in 2012 — when I was working on my first start up. The first time I understood what it actually meant was in 2015.
I grew up this year. From a starry eyed entrepreneur with a larger than life vision and bucket full of optimism, I ended up becoming much more.
What is the secret behind having the most kick ass year? Is it 10% of hard work (or more than that?) or just sheer luck that you’re on this planet only to shine like the brightest star, or just a bit of magic dust that makes your wishes its command?
Well, it surely does take more than that. The year 2015 has been absolutely phenomenal for us at BitGiving. Being a part of others’ successes and triumphs is something we thrive on.
