Auto Drivers from Chennai feed 500 poor
by donating Rs1000 each! Watch them
Below is an amazing example of the power of individuals! Watch this video to see what a young girl did to raise money for her favourite cause! You too can think of something similar to do during JGW2012!
Here's what some amazing individuals did last year:
• Volunteered to form part of the core JGW team, spending 2-3 hours a day, evangelising the idea and encouraging people to organise events, helping them with connections, networks and other support
• Organised small events- taking the maid's children out for ice-cream, visited old age homes with a bunch of friends, planted trees or organised a small fundraising event
• Over 2,000,000 people participated in the various JGW initiatives!

What You Can Do This Year

• Donate clothes through the Vastrasamman campaign
• Donate money through the India Giving Challenge
• Sign up as a volunteer for JGW itself- check your city page!
• Search for events in your city and participate in them
• Organise as event in your own city!!
• Do the SMILE DECK activity!

It started like just a small thought over a cup of tea during office talk among couple of colleagues at Voltas that we should explore some opportunity and extend help / support in what ever way , we can do. Then we took help of CSR Manager - Margaret who helped us in identifying "Divya Prabha" in Thane. Divya Prabha is home for many girl child who were either abandoned on street or have been sent from Remand Home..mainly aged between 6 to 12 years. Here they stay, goes to school, also participate in special skill development and when they grow beyond 13 years , usually transferred to Divya Prabha Home in Vasai. Sister Rosario take care of Thane center.

Today we spent almost 3 hours there chatting , playing with kids and had lunch with them. Kids were amazing and had shown us their dancing skills.

Ofcourse this was just a begining and we will keep a regular & continous touch with this organisation to extend best possible support from us.

I thought this was one of the best moment of our lives and amazing way to feel satisfaction over "JOY OF GIVING"

no event yet in Allahabad- but YOU can organise one! Just get a few friends together and do any simple act of giving, e.g., visit an orphanage/elderly home nearby, collect & donate old clothes, etc.
