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.
Events are organised by individuals, social groups, schools, colleges, NGOs, corporates, media houses and others. 1 million+ people participated in thousands of events across 70+ cities in JGW2010, raising over Rs20 crores in money and resources donated, and millions of volunteer hours.
