JGW 09 in Cochin
Even as one gears up for JGW 2010, we continue to be amazed and overwhelmed by 'giving' stories that we come across about the Joy of Giving Week, 09. Here is one from Cochin that we did'nt know of. The information has been shared by a young engineer,Jisha, in Cochin Square and the picture she has posted says it all.
"As part of Gandhi Jayanti celebrations this year, the Joy of Giving Week, an initiative by an NGO ‘Give India’, will be held from September 27 to October 3. The students of Adarsh Charitable Trust will be given a grand dinner with a celebrity guest at Hotel Mercy and Hotel Abad Plaza on September 27 and 30. The children will be entertained with magic by magician Gopinath Muthucad and singer G Venugopal will be singing some beautiful songs for them. Many more celebrities are likely to attend the dinner. Around 50 students are selected for the ‘dinner with the celebrity’ night.
Anybody who wishes to be a part this function, can join in. You can dine for a cause and a share of the profit will go to Adarsh. One can contribute money, skills or resources during this week. Corporates can contribute their one-day’s salary or provide study materials for the students of Adarsh. A voluntary medical camp will be organized by the students of Ayurveda College at Adarsh during the week. Even you can contribute whatever you can. Every bit counts. Give as much or as little as you wish to."
Every drop counts may sound cliched but that is exactly what the above article emphasises as it exhorts us to 'give as much or as little" as we wish to. Let us remember that this year during Joy of Giving Week 2010.
If you have more such stories, please do share them with us.
