New Delhi: Independent representatives from an NGO named ‘Spirits of Giving’ have once again come together to brighten up the festive season for the underprivileged. In a series of events spread across 21 cities throughout India, various groups of Independent Representatives have come forward to raise money to help the underprivileged communities.
Around 50 such entrepreneurs had come together in Delhi and distributed clothes, toys & toiletries to the Bal Sahyog, located in Connaught Place, Delhi. Around 1,500 young entrepreneurs, who run ‘Spirits of Giving’, have pledged between INR 50,000 to INR 1 lakh per city towards important causes benefiting a local community in need. This is the fourth year that these entrepreneurs have initiated such an exercise during the festival season to reinforce their commitment to helping communities and their own belief in the spirit of giving. Funds raised by the group this year will be used to help orphanages, homes for the disabled and the elderly, and for the education as well as provision of essential commodities and
educational tools such as stationery and books.
Other groups of entrepreneurs have also planned similary charitable initiatives in Chennai,
Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata, Mumbai, Hubli, Mangalore, Delhi, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Jaipur,
