When you get involved with our cause only then we can sustain and end classroom hunger altogether from India. The Akshaya Patra Foundation as a NGO needs support and contribution to keep running the mid-day meal programme. And you can do from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else on your own time as you wishes and want!
Sharing a few ideas to make a head start, you can organise a social gathering. We all are aware that entertainment attracts the most. It is also effective and a fun thing to do to raise fund. You and your friends can have a fabulous evening catching up and sharing stories. Taking the opportunity you can ask for them to donate for the cause of course after share what the cause is all about. No matter how much is the collection it matters a lot to the children who are the beneficiaries of Akshaya Patra. Every bit will go in providing nutritious meals to millions of children.
A sporting event is super fun too! You can bring up good healthy competitions by organising a sports event. With a nominal entry fee to have fun with a range of solo and team sporting competitions like relay, long jump, cricket and football matches and more, you can get a collection to contribute later to Akshaya Patra. You get to have a healthy event with your friends and close ones and also make a lump sum to donate to a cause.
If you don’t prefer outdoor events, there indoor games too! It can be just as fun as outdoor games. Organise a faceoff with your friends over some indoor tournaments like board games, chess, scrabble, jenga and more. You can charge for entry and refreshments. The funds you collect can go to helping the children.
There are many other ways to organize cool events and make a collection to contribute. You can have fun events at schools to raise fund for The Akshaya Patra Foundation. You can create cool merchandise and sell for a small amount or you can throw summer party during holidays or a fundraising sports day. Bake and sell can be exciting too! Sky is limit to getting creative and doing your bit to help a foundation like Akshaya Patra which is providing 1.4 million children with nutritious mid-day meal every school day. So, get creative for a cause!
