Extra Terrestrials: “Showcasing the unbelievable potential of the human physique”, “wow factor intact right through” and “creating the must-watch show of the year”.
Extra Terrestrials was on action at the Music Academy on the 13th of June 2013.
United Way of Chennai supports 1000 underprivileged children for viewing the show: Children would love to see this show; especially the underprivileged ones supported by United Way of Chennai. These include children living within the juvenile justice systems from juvenile homes, reception homes and observation homes and children living with disabilities. United Way of Chennai would love to support 1000 such children to view this show.
How do these children benefit by viewing this show: They will be motivated, inspired and will demonstrate similar interests. It is also a way to relieve their stress levels and depression which in turn will help them move forward with life. They will see the impossible made possible. Since children learn by seeing, hearing and enjoy doing things of their own, viewing this show will be of a tremendous use to them.
Partners: NOKIA helped with the pickup and drop off of children to and from their respective schools/home by making available 22 buses and 4 temp travellers during the show.
RR Donnelley: Skilled volunteers helped United Way of Chennai in organizing the transportation for the children, ushering them with the required seats keeping in mind the otherwise able children.
Schools/Home include: Nearly 1030 children from 20 schools and centers already supported by United Way of Chennai viewed the show. These include children from Spastic Society of Tamilnadu consisting of 3 centers, V Excel, Children’s home of HOPE, Mercy Niketan, Guild of Service for Physically Handicapped, Guild of Service Bala Vihar, Madhuram Narayanan Center for Exceptional Children, The Down’s Syndrome Association, Annanda Illam, T.Nagar Boys School, Royapuram Boys Home, Kelly’s girls home and Porur Girls High School.

Our children and their caregivers watched with rapt attention, almost mesmerized and frankly, there was no disability manifestation for that period of time!
