About the Event
About Daan Utsav: It is a week-long festival celebrating philanthropy. It takes place from October 2 to 8 when people, individually or collectively, do an act of giving - could be donating their money, time or goods. Last year 60,00,000+ Indians across the country participated.
Daan Utsav is NOT an NGO or organisation. It is a movement. It has no employees and all activities are driven by passionate and committed volunteers who are keen to spread the message of giving. Anyone can be a volunteer and can do any giving activity in their home, community or office.
This is its 10th year and it has become the biggest platform for philanthropy across India with many NGOs, corporates, schools, colleges and urban and rural communities participating.
Ten celebrities from different walks of life have come together and signed a joint invitation to the people of India to celebrate the festival of giving. They are Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Anu Aga, Azim Premji, Chhavi Rajawat, Devi Shetty, Justice Srikrishna, Lata Mangeshkar, Mary Kom and Sachin Tendulkar.
Hundreds of events all over India are being driven by ordinary citizens...including all of us at SmallChange.ngo
