Be the Cause


Upon hearing the story about the “Secret Santa” and Sukh’s idea, in spirit of this mystery philanthropist, about giving $5 to each guest of Seva (this past Saturday) when they leave and to only ask that they spend the $5 on someone else as a random act of kindness, I didn’t think of the impact that it would have on the guests.

However, I was to learn about the impacts from the first guests that left that night. Our first guest was a young couple. When they left, I thanked them for coming in and handed each of them $5 and asked them to spend the $5 on someone else. As I handed the young man the $5, he hesitantly reached out in confusion as if it to think how weird and unusual it is for someone to randomly hand him $5. That was really his only response. I don’t even believe he said anything but he definitely looked down at his hand to make sure that what he was actually witnessing was true. Yes, someone was actually putting a $5 in his hand for free to spend it on someone else. His female friend had the opposite reaction. She reacted quickly with a big smile on her face and responded with an, “Awwww.”

Seva Cafe – Guest Comments – Weeks 11-13

(Below are comments from guests of the Seva Cafe)

Seva Café is a great concept and Kudos! to Sukh and his team for their inspiration and effort to involve youngsters and spread positive energy to one and all. Our week end visit at the Seva Café was truly rewarding. It indeed is a magical place to be with energetic youngsters all around. We felt right at home with every one being so warm and friendly. It was amazing to watch the selfless dedicated workers dance, sing and serve with a smile to their guests. We are very proud of all of you and we wish you every success for your future. Thanks for the wonderful entertainment and yummy sandwiches.

Very great, the idea of people not charging for service and not expecting a set amount of payment for it. Really makes one see their true generosity.

We loved the veggie paradise sandwich!

This was an amazing experience. Being a vegetarian, the menu was too good to be true. And its rare to see so much love/happiness in one place.
