Welcome to this blog on the Joy of Giving Week, a week long festival of giving, held each year to coincide with Gandhi Jayanthi. We hope that by reading this, all of us discover what a joy it is to give to others.To the givers amongst us, we say, reaffirm your commitment to your chosen cause and to the rest, we invite you to join the community of givers, between October 2-8. Truly a Joy of Giving Week.

a week long affair
The 2011 chapter of JGW begins on Sunday and will last for a week. As the week approaches, more and more Indians have begun their own private affair with the week, individually or collectively. We have in earlier posts, focussed on how some individuals plan to celebrate the week. There is also plenty of media attention paid to corporates and institutions on their plans to celebrate the JGW. Housing societies are not lagging behind either and have in the past contributed tremendously to the success of the week and hope to do so this year also : recycling, donating, volunteering, are just a few of the activities the members of housing societies plan to indulge in. The societies have found a great way to mingle fun with charity by planning myriad activities during the JGW. A sample is reflected in the poster designed by Sterling Society.
