A Wish Tree to spread Joy

The Joy of Giving Week is India’s “festival of giving”! Launched in 2009, the festival is celebrated every year, in the week including Gandhi Jayanti, i.e., October 2-8, and brings together Indians from all walks of life, to celebrate “giving”. From auto drivers to CEOs, school children to celebrities, homemakers to opinion leaders, millions of people give their time, money, resources or skills back to society- by creating or participating in “events” of their choice. A giving event could be as simple as a family taking out the maid’s children for an ice-cream party, or as large as the Design For Change Contest that had 200,000+ school children across India participating and volunteering to make a difference.

SuperSeva is supporting “JOY OF GIVING “ Week in all the Corporates in Bangalore by providing the Corporates a platform to celebrate the excitement of “JOY OF GIVING “ and to showcase the firms CSR activities. SuperSeva believes in ‘Giving back to Society’ and ‘Giving back to Nature.’ Realizing this gem of a thought SuperSeva in association with Samarthanam Trust is placing Wish Tree at all corporates .

What is a wish Tree ?

Its a simple tree made out of card board, thermocol or other materials that has little wishes from Samarthanam Trust and its beneficiaries.

How can you participate?

The employees of Corporates can bring a smile to all these underprivileged people by making small contributions. The “wish cards” can be replaced with  “I did my bit card “and have the donor’s names written on it, so that as the Week progresses, the tree “sheds wishes and gains smileys” .

By the end of the Joy Of Giving Week, the tree should hopefully be laden with smileys.

As rightly said by the most looked upon personality in the Corporate Word Mr. N R Narayana Murthy that the “The real power of money is the power to give it away”.This will give every individual a satisfaction of participation by doing their bit and SuperSeva is motivating every employees by doing such events in corporates to help the needy and the unfortunate individuals.
