October 2nd to 8th is that time of the year in Inida, when the entire country celebrates the Joy of Giving Week (now called Daan Utsav – 2014), a week full of generosity where all in solidarity give back to the society. There is no class, religion, caste or creed of the givers that directs them to celebrate the week. It propagates the Indian culture and traditions of giving. And Akshaya Patra celebrates this week with the country to bring more joy to the children it feeds by raising funds for mid-day meals. Celebrate Joy of Giving Week through online donation for charity like Akshaya Patra.
As a result of your generosity Akshaya Patra will be further strengthened to reach over 1.4 million children across India. You spread the joy to children from over 10,661 Government and Government aided schools. By giving to online donation for charity like Akshaya Patra, you can enjoy the experience of joy of giving at a whole new level. This season, celebrate Joy of Giving Week by bringing nutritious, wholesome meals to children across the nation. Rs. 750 can feed a child throughout the year, so multiply it by total number of children you want to feed and giving through online donation for charity.
The Joy of Giving Week is fairly a new festival that was initiated just to promote giving as a culture by a group of people, which has gone viral in past years. The idea is not only to contribute through funds but also time, skills etc. NGO’s like Akshaya Patra seek support from every individual possible as every contribution counts in terms of money, kind, skills and time. Apart from online donation for charity, one can also get involved with Akshaya Patra. Find out more.
Let’s take it a step further this year and make aware of this festival among all that we know. Share about the Joy of Giving Week and Akshaya Patra and spread the joy among all.
