For every act of giving that you do during #DaanUtsav, there is now a great way to tell your friends and family, and in turn inspire them to do the same.
Sporting a ‘Happy Dot’, taking a selfie and posting it on social media is the new trend to engage more and more people to celebrate #DaanUtsav.
A #HappyDot is a celebration of the joy that comes with giving without expecting anything in return. Like the black ink mark on your finger that means you are a responsible citizen, a ‘Happy Dot’ is symbolic of experiencing ‘giving’ in any form, however small or big. Celebrities like Nandita Das, Rannvijay, Kalki Koechlin, chef Sanjeev Kapoor and Sachin Tendulkar joined in on the movement and posted #HappyDot selfies during #DaanUtsav to reach out to more people.
There are four simple steps to take a #HappyDot selfie -
1. Do an act of giving during #DaanUtsav week from 2-8 October.
2. Put a Happy Dot sticker on your cheek/finger/hand. Alternatively, you could also draw the Happy Dot with simple marker pen.
3. Take a selfie.
4. Share it on social media Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat, WhatsApp etc with the hashtags #DaanUtsav, #HappyDot etc, with one line on the act of giving that you did.
