Irving resident Jayashree Krishnan is an artist, baker and part-time educator who is using her passions to help communities around the world.

Krishnan’s fundraising experience runs the gamut — and she’s just getting started.

She has donated her hair to the Children with Hair Loss nonprofit based in Michigan; sold handmade jewelry and crafts to raise money for the Dallas TKG Academy, which is a private school based in Indian spiritual education; and held a virtual baking class to raise money for a school in India that teaches children with disabilities.

Her most recent fundraiser was a multicultural craft workshop for Soulfree, a rehabilitation center in India that provides housing, assistance and advocacy for people with spinal cord injuries. After teaching two art workshops and receiving donations from family and friends, she raised $1,400, which translates into about 111,163 rupees.

“I’m glad I was able to do something,” Krishnan said. Soulfree “is trying to create an awareness to the public, so people can get to know more about these kinds of disabilities.”
