Reaching out to kids with sweet boxes

Chennai: iGiver, an NGO that connects donors to other NGOs, is running a campaign for Deepavali. While families in Chennai celebrate the annual festival with gusto, there are unfortunate children living in orphanages who are left out of the loop.

The NGO has launched a campaign – ‘Kanna Sweet Donate Panna Aasaya’ – by which you spend as low as Rs 60 to gift one box that would be filled with cake and cookies put together by Winners Bakery.

This would be donated to one underprivileged child. You don’t have to stop with one donation but give as much as your big heart desires, says a note from Raghav of iGiver. They have so far collected 956 sweet boxes and have set their sights on notching it up to 3,000 boxes.
