TURBAN DAY 2018
On behalf of the team of Sikhs of NY we want to Thank everyone that came from far and near to support our cause yesterday! We were truly overwhelmed to see the support of 1,300+ volunteers and many more participants.

Also, we would like to Congratulate everyone around the world for creating a new Guinness World Record of “Most Turbans Tied in 8 hours

The movement has just started... ..#TurbanDay2018 #TurbanDayNYC #IamASikh
The purpose of this campaign is to bring awareness among all Americans and other World citizens about Sikhism and Turban and to help correct misperceptions about Turban through which we share the values of love, faith, equality and social justice. Turbans are tied to Americans and Non -Sikhs, and educational material is distributed by the volunteers.

Pink Turban Day
Sikhs of NY tied up with the Susan G. Komen foundation based in NYC to spread awareness about Breast cancer and honor those fighting the tough battle.
The organization used core Sikh values from Sikh gurus to always support and serve those in need or fighting diseases. Volunteers from Sikhs of NY dressed in all pink colors tie pink turbans to honor the brave with the Sikh crown. Every year more than thousands of Survivors and who are fighting with Breast cancer are crowned with pink turban.

About Turban
For every Sikh, Turban is our Pride, our Honour, our Legacy and the Crown gifted to us by Sikh Gurus to stand for Equality, Justice and Humanity and not just a piece of cloth which is tied around the head.
Turban is a quintessential part of Sikh identity and represents the most pertinent element of the Sikh Faith that teaches every one of us that all people are equal irrespective of caste, religion, country, thus signifying equal status. Turban give Strength and identity to a Sikh and induces the courage to face all odds, always ready to help and service the mankind.

This is the reason why we do Turban Day events!

We can completely relate to this child's agony and I'm sure many are going through the same currently.

On Saturday night, April 28th 2018, a fire with an unknown cause ripped through the Kainth family home in Queens Village, NY. They lost 3 family members and several were left critically injured. Most of the family members are still in the hospital recovering.

There was a total of 11 members in the household, ages ranging from 6 to 87 years old, and 8 were pulled out safely. There were about 140 firefighters battling the 3-alarm fire.

32-year-old, Harleen Kaur, saved her children and went back into the house to save the others and didn’t make it out. The grandparents, 82-year-old, Ragvir Kaur-Kainth, and 87-year-old Pyara Kainth also perished in the fire.

The Kainth household treated everyone like family and always tried their best to put a smile on everyone’s faces. It is our duty as human beings to give them the same love and care that they shared with everyone.

They lost everything in this horrific event; such as clothing, personal belongings, memories and even the roof over their head.

We want to help them get back on their feet and support them in this challenging process. We want to be able to alleviate their economic and financial stress while they are recovering in the hospital.
**All funds are being directed towards the immediate family ONLY!!**
