 About the Joy of Giving Week

The Joy of Giving Week that was pioneered in 2009 (celebrated from October 2nd – 8th every year) is a special week, which aims to bring people from all walks of life together to get involved with a cause(s) of their choice. It is a concerted effort across companies, celebrities, business heads, NGOs, schools, colleges, and the general public, to promote “giving”. The Week is expected to involve more than 1 crore Indians from all over India in "acts of giving".
