Hello, my name is Nikita Bhatia, I am 16 years old, and I am the youngest action center lead in the country. My passion for the cause started when I was 12 and visiting my family in India. We were stuck in traffic and I witnessed a child about the same age as me, pick up a piece of food off the ground, and start happily eating it. I think it was a mix of shock, regret, remorse, confusion, anger, and disappointment that I decided I wanted to help these children. I am passionate about the cause of providing children like me with basic needs like education and healthcare in order to put them on the right path. A child's future should not be decided by the house they were born in. A child's success should not depend on the ill fortune of their family. Every child should have the same opportunity, and CRY America is a cause that is dedicated to fighting for this cause. CRY provides long lasting change for these children, we don't provide just one meal or just one textbook. We provide lasting change that will help children succeed. I hope you too will feel the way I do about the rights of children and donate to the cause and or register for the event! Stand with me to protect the rights of children, our present, our future, the success our world depends on.
