Anushka Jain's mantra-Make a donation, fulfil a wish

In 2010, she started collecting donations with an aim to reach every single child require an aid. She said: “My mother used to donate clothes on my birthday to NGOs and it made me wonder why I couldn’t do this all the time.  That’s how this idea came to me.”
“We coined the idea of Share At Door Step in 2011. We noticed that we have doorstep services for almost everything, but nothing catering to our pursuit of inner satisfaction, which comes from making other people happy,” Jain said.
Initially, she had to work hard to pick and drop donations by her own. Today she has several volunteers in her team who are equally dedicated. “Initially, I would pick up as many as 200 donation items and would contact those who were in need.”
Share at Door Step
In 2011, she started a group called Share at Door Step with an aim to reach out every single child in need.  This group work on three basic principles, first, to meet people who are too busy and unable to go out and donate. Second, there is a big gap between NGOs and people as they don’t know the requirements. Third, there is no easy way to make a monetary donation. That’s why Jain founded her venture, where people simply need to schedule their pickup in advance.
In her group she has more than 150 volunteers most of them are college students and youngsters. “We have some strict standards that donors as well NGOs need to follow. We send a receipt and picture of donation to NGO and person in need.”
How to reach
All one needs to do is contact SADS via mail or on the phone or through Facebook to connect with the volunteers. “As soon as we receive the notification saying you want to make a donation, we contact you and fix an appointment that suits you,” she added, “We have the requirement lists from different partner NGOs. After basic levels of audit and verification, we send the donations to the respective NGOs and credit your account with share points within a week. Also we will mail you the receipt and the snaps in five working days.”
Initially they had to face lot of challenges, but things are improving steadily as she believes. According to her volunteers, people don’t trust at first sight, they usually make them aware about the cause and entire picture. “Whenever we go to the public and ask for some donation, they look at us in a doubt. However, we have all authentic proofs with proper documents with us, people don’t get ready to come forward for donations. To please them and to make them satisfy is a biggest challenge.”
