  1. Its really a valuable information...
    hope ppl go thru dis event vill have joy in giving...
    I jz want to know whether there is any event in Hyderabad like this....
    If so plz mail me at

  2. If there is no such programme going in hyderbad... its gud that sum NGO start working for it with the intrested ppl...

  3. Hi Anjali,

    The Joy of Giving Week team will also organize some city-specific events that bring a large number of NGOs together. For instance, Chennai and Hyderabad will see a “Battle of Buffets” event where 5* hotels of the city offer their best buffets free of cost and every NGO can sell seats at the lavish event for Rs5,000 each.

    And this is what you can do irrespective of where you are..

    1. Organise a clothes collection drive in your building or college
    2. Volunteer 3-4 hours in the week with an NGO on a specific activity- creating an MIS for an NGO, helping with their documentation, just filing and sorting the data that they may have
    3. Give a couple of days off to your household help and do their work instead
    4. Engage in shramdaan – offer to clean the premises of your temple, mosque or church.
    5. Give up something that you feel maybe really difficult – icecream, coffee, the extra chapatti…and treat a child on the street or in your neighborhood instead.
    6. Visit an elderly relative you may have forgotten about in many years.

  5. Hi ashok,

    It is not necessary for you to join an organization if you want to help. It's upto you whether you want to join or not. You can go to your nearby orphanages/oldage homes in tamilnadu/hyderabad whenever you have some time. If you want to visit the orphanages/oldage homes in Hyderabad, you can find the list of orphanages here, . Or you can message me when u come to Hyd.
