Veer campaign, an initiative to raise funds to create employment for 1,000 people with disabilities, seems to be quite close to its target - the two-month drive has already collected Rs.50 lakh.

The campaign, a joint initiative by Thumps Up, Salman Khan's Being Human, the American India Foundation, and CNN-IBN, launched Jan 24 with a target to raise at least Rs.75 lakhs.

CNN-IBN and IBN7 have showcased inspiring stories of people with disabilities, who despite various obstacles have managed to achieve success and earn people's respect.

"We at Being Human - the Salman Khan Foundation - thank all those who have supported the Veer initiative. We hope the campaign continues to grow in strength," Alvira Khan, on behalf of Salman Khan's Being Human foundation, said in a statement.
