We usually do not like to complain in public but in the favor of public interest we would like to put some light on an incident that happened to Sakshum sometime back.
A guy named ‘Sarathi’ approached Sakshum mentioning he is running a company named ‘RosePetals’ to organize corporate sports. He mentioned as Sakshum is doing great job to help the society so to support it he wants to invite Sakshum to put a stall in the upcoming sport events. Additionally, he will donate the money RosePetals will earn from the corporate event that is going to happen.
Team Sakshum was pretty excited and participated in this event. After the event got over we expected to receive some contribution raised by RosePetals and to our surprise we did not receive any. We tried to call and email after every few days and we did not hear anything back. So, it was clear that the guy was not willing to share anything and used Sakshum’s name just for their personal benefits.
This was quite an unpleasant experience for us where people take advantage of not for profit organizations for their personal benefits. RosePetals, mentioned clearly in their invitation emails to various corporates that Sakshum will be benefited from this event.
So, our appeal is to be careful from such companies and avoid if possible. Below are some of the links and information we have so that readers can recognize and avoid them in future.

So here is the complete response thread from the organization after we posted on facebook which we finally ended up as we don’t see any sound reasoning behind explanations and we have good proof of all the emails from them
