Give a new meaning to celebrations – Donate to charity

Will charity donations during festive season make a difference? Yes, it will. Shopping, partying, get-togethers, vacations and feasts are all common occurrences during any festive season. But, when one chooses to celebrate an occasion by donating to charity, it brings out the conscientiousness of an individual. 

A charity donation does not always mean lump sum of money. Charity can be both in cash or kind, the bottom line is it should be done with sincerity and sense of feeling towards the cause you are contributing. Present day, all the NGOs give its supporters and donors the ease of donating from the comforts of their homes and work place through online charity donations

As internet has brought the entire world to the desktop and the palm top, the option of online charity donations has been of great aid to all the donors and supporters. The internet also allows visitors to get an overview of the NGOs and its causes. It also allows access to the management, functionality, effectiveness and impact of the NGO in the community level. It also allows a donor to choose the cause and NGO he or she would like to support. As internet places many options in front of a potential donor, it thus becomes very important that the NGOs make the process of their online charity donations easy and user-friendly. 

However, let’s together make this festive season more meaningful. Let’s spare some time to consider the children in need and donate to charity for their betterment. Along with gifting our family and friends, let us also gift the children and beneficiaries of The Akshaya Patra Foundation the gift of wholesome meal and education. Akshaya Patra is an Indian NGO that is implementing the free school lunch programme in more than 10,000 Government schools across nine states of India. Every day the Foundation feeds 1.3 million children across the country. Started in 2000 from Karnataka, today it is operational in 20 locations covering the states of Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Odisha, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. 

The success stories of the beneficiaries speak the significance of the mid-day meal programme. It reveals the importance of one meal that brings the child to school despite all odds and keeps their hopes alive. These stories will bring to fore the potential of online charity donations and offline charity donations both in cash or kind.
