"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” - Helen Keller

Since 2015 MIBIHAR has been sponsoring PRASAD to devotees at Bharatiya Temple on Pran Pratishtha Weekend on Sundays as community service. Over the years it has become a MIBIHAR tradition.

Due to the unprecedented times we find ourselves in this year, Bhartiya Temple will perform this puja within closed walls this weekend on June 12 - June 14, 2020. However it will be streamed online. To maintain MIBIHAR’s tradition, we decided to donate monetarily to the temple’s fund. We seek your generous contribution in terms of a donation of $51 per family. We encourage you to Donate via the PayPal Link provided below.

Thank you for caring and participating in this cause.

MIBIHAR - Friends of Bihar and Jharkhand in Michigan, was founded with a sense of community, social responsibility and service to others. From time to time, MIBIHAR members have engaged in various social service activities to make a difference in our community and beyond. Members have joined hands to answer the call for help during natural disasters, and many other crises. MIBIHAR has made a reputation of assisting others at numerous charitable events and causes that have required volunteer or monetary contribution.

Our previous campaigns:

MIBIHAR Seva "Abhai" partners with Macaroni Grill to provide meals to Oakland County First Responders. We are seeking your support to raise funds toward the mentioned cause to show our gratitude to First Responders. No amount is small and preferred donations are in $5 denominations. The thought and the willingness to help others is what really matters. MIBIHAR Seva "Abhai" is going to match dollar for dollar up to $1000 to maximize funds. You can use the PayPal Donate Button below to donate for this cause. Thank you.

Last year at the MIBIHAR Dussehra Diwali Dhoom 2017 event, we marked another milestone for the MIBIHAR. MIBIHAR circle of friends were proud to launch a new, charitable wing named the MIBIHAR SEVA "ABHAI". This separate wing enabled the members to solely concentrate on the social and charitable causes that would make a difference in our local community and beyond. Our seva committee would identify different social, educational, natural or personal crisis/ causes where our members can reach out to help others. From time to time, MIBIHAR SEVA "ABHAI" would also engage in various fundraising activities to generate financial resources for those in need. As an organization, this philanthropic and benevolent move marks a landmark step toward being an entity that plans to leaves an everlasting, positive mark in the society.

MIBIHAR SEVA has dedicated its name as ABHAI, in the loving memory of Late. Shri Abhai N. Bardaiyar, a long-time mentor and guide to MIBIHAR. With this name dedication, we at MIBIHAR resolve to continue to strive to be fearless, and be inspired to put service to the others first. The MIBIHAR SEVA "ABHAI" initiative will be a solely volunteer driven charitable wing of MIBIHAR. We would be looking for an active youth and adult involvement for planning, execution of numerous charities and volunteer activities throughout the year.
