Amit Bhatia - Charity


In 2007, Bhatia initiated the Mittal Champions Trust, which sponsors Indian sportsmen with world-class potential, one of whom, Abhinav Bindra, won a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics just one year later in 2008.

Bhatia took part in a triathlon in the summer of 2009 to raise funds for the QPR in the Community Trust charity, raising some £32,000.

In 2011, Bhatia donated money to the Cornell University Library System to support its café space in the first floor of The John M. Olin Library. The café was renamed that same year to "Amit Bhatia Libe Café;" it had formerly been known as just "Libe Café".

Famous quotes containing the word charity:

    The appalling thing is the degree of charity women are capable of. You see it all the time ... love lavished on absolute fools. Love’s a charity ward, you know.
    Lawrence Durrell (1912–1990)

    Reputation is not of enough value to sacrifice character for it.
    —“Miss Clark,” U.S. charity worker. As quoted in Petticoat Surgeon, ch. 9, by Bertha Van Hoosen (1947)

    Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
    —Bible: New Testament St. Paul, in 1 Corinthians, 8:1-2.
