Celebrating Joy of Giving Week – 2014

In view of the “Daan Utsav” our champions are visiting a tribal village, Chinnur Colony in Kodaikanal district on 18th Oct 2014. During this visit we are interacting with around 25 children to understand their problems and see how we can help them in their education. As part of our trip we are collecting used clothes for the above mentioned children.

Giving is Living

What can we Give?

We have come with Nothing. So we cannot Give.

We made products from needles to computers from of our mother earth and made money made out of these.

We have received everything from this planet, from Sun light, Water, Food, etc., to Oxygen for our living.

So what can we give?

Since we cannot really give anything, Shall we Share?

Let’s do that. Let’s give what we have received, which is not even ours, with the people who are in need.

This is one way of Living.

It’s not even Giving it’s just Living.
