A crucial stakeholder in the business process is the customer. Customer-facing corporates have the rare opportunity to engage several crores of their customers to do an act of giving during #DaanUtsav. By engaging their customers, corporates are, hence, able to create large numbers of givers.
Some examples to get inspired by
Ever since corporates started celebrating #DaanUtsav in 2009, they have successfully managed to create simple, large-scale campaigns and opportunities to spread awareness about #DaanUtsav and get their customers to do an act of giving during 2-8 October every year.
For instance, SPAR Hypermart sold packets of grain and food supplies in their stores across seven cities which were bought by their customers and donated to selected NGOs or someone in need. Equally inspiring was Indian Oil’s petrol pumps, where NGOs put up collection booths which became the locus of giving across cities.
