Becket’s Year 9 Community Leader Ashutosh Vaitha Collects Another 1,002 Cup Noodles For Rosies: Friends On The Street!

After the success of Becket’s Term Two Cup Noodles Rosies Charity Food Drive, our Year 9 Becket Community Leader, Ashutosh Vaitha, thought he could do even more to help.

His family learned about Rosies’ need for cup noodle donations, and how bad the situation was for the homeless and disadvantaged people living in the Logan region.

So Ashutosh’s mum helped him create a poster, and then he reached out to more of his extended family and friends – the wider Indian community, his taekwondo buddies, doctors and nurses – to donate more cup noodles for Rosies – Friends On The Street.

Earlier in Term Two, Ashutosh had already single-handedly collected 330 cup noodles, through his mum’s colleagues at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.

After his efforts over the mid-year break, he has managed to raise another 1,002 more cup noodles… WOW!

Ashutosh’s mother is extremely proud of her son’s efforts, and as Hindus, their religion focuses on love and compassion.

Mrs Seema Prasad-Vaitha wrote: “I try my best to make sure that both my sons are empathetic, and appreciate what they have in life, and the people in their lives.”

“I believe by Ashutosh doing this collection, and giving people he doesn’t know his time, helping the less fortunate in his own Logan community, he has learnt a great life skill.”

“I am truly proud of him.”

Great job Ashutosh!
