The Joy of Giving Week

#DaanUtsav (earlier called the Joy of Giving Week) is India’s ‘festival of giving’. Launched in 2009, the festival is celebrated every year – commencing on Gandhi Jayanti – from October 2 to 8. From auto rickshaw drivers to CEOs, school children to celebrities, homemakers to opinion leaders and media personnel, millions of people from all walks of life come together during this week to give their time, money, resources, or skills back to society. They do this by creating or participating in events of their choice. A giving event could be as simple as a family taking out their maid’s children for an ice-cream party, or as large as a ‘Gift Compassion’. The latter is an event that has over 10,000 schoolchildren every year across India making and exchanging gifts with their peers from different socio-economic backgrounds.

What is your idea of giving ?

Re: The Joy of Giving Week

Nice concept !! I have worked in a few charity organizations while in Indua.

For an orphanage (girls) we collected 'raddi'/old clothes from middle class folks. Sold these to get some cash. Most girls from orphanage grew up well educated, are settled with a good life ahead of them. Few girls became techies, some have their own small businesses in Bangaluru. These ex-orphanage girls are helping the younger kids.. it's beautiful the sisterhood.

I am sponsoring education of few kids in my relative's school.

That's a lovely concept. A whole week dedicated to Giving. My parents used to do it during Diwali time.
