Under vehicle Wash equipment
Unlike the typical fund raisers, this event was so different in so many ways. The recovering addicts, who were also members of SWAD took the event into their own hands with the guidance of DYM members.
From the very beginning, we had planned the event in such a way that we carry it out with a zero budget by getting sponsors for all the equipments to be used. The members were very cooperative and operated with a special interest which was very inspiring.
However, at the end, even though some of the things did not go as we planned, with a lot of obstacles, with the help of a lot of members of DYM and SWAD, we managed to pull it together and raised an amount close to MRF 1000 in two hours.
We got vehicle wash equipment sponsorship from ‘Hakatha Sunbuli’ and music equipment sponsor from ‘Reefside’. We got water supply and electricity sponsorship from ‘Dhon Manik Sky View. I’d like to note here how cooperative they were to the cause and thank them on behalf of SWAD and DYM members.
The Vehicle Wash with SWAD (Society for Women against Drugs) was, as I believe, one of the major milestones for DYM because it was the first project that was collaborated with another NGO. It was also a huge learning experience for DYM which paved the way to more collaboration’s in upcoming projects.

However, the United States Government, a State, or a political subdivision of a State may prescribe a standard for a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment obtained for its own use that imposes a higher performance requ…
Essentially the above statue is saying that federal law takes precedent over state law and that state law must be at least at federal level however state law can exceed federal law if the state so chooses but it cannot fall below the federal level.
Reality check however, California has determined that they want a significantly higher emissions standard on new cars coming into the state within the next few years and the federal government has determined that California cannot require such standards....so California has opted to sue the federal government as they are in violation of the…
