JOGS – Joy Of Giving Sunday
In my last post I have written about an event. The event was JOGS. It’s a great pleasure to inform you that we have successfully executed the event. Many friends had supported to make this event possible. Here is the some brief and snaps of this event.
We have decided to execute a pilot event first rather a big one. So, we had not done any big efforts to make this event huge. We had started to speak with our friends and neighbors. Idea was will buy foods and statinery and will get the old clothes from our neighbors and friends. Many of our friends and friend’s of friends has contributed to this event.
Many many thanks to Shailesh Joshi, Prashant Sachaniya, Naresh Kakkad, Viral Pathak (for giving his bike), Juniyas Bhagat (Provided Cloths), Yogendra Rathod (for his Digital Camera ), Hitesh Parmar, Ashok Chauhan, Kaushik Baroliya, Gautam Lakum, Aslam Multani, Jimit Shah, Hitesh Anjara, Prashant Patel, MULTIDOTS and all the people who had contributed their clothes and provided best wishes for this event. We had collected Rs. 2100 as donation for this event. We purchased foods and stationery from this money.
So it was Sunday Morning, we had everything ready and everyone was quite excited to make this possible. Everyone gathered at MULTIDOTS office at by 8:30 AM. We prayed for everything good for this event. At 9:00 AM we started to march. We had decided will go to Nalsarovar via Bavala and will carry out this charity on villages on the way. It was a great bike riding fun for me as well as I am quite crazy about driving. Around 10:00 AM, we were on a small village. We had distributed foods, clothes and stationery on that village.
After that we started to move. We reached at another village at 11:00 AM. There is a huge temple in this village. We made ourselves fresh and invited small kids around the temple for a movie and computer education. Kids enjoyed that lot, it was a great fun. We had also distributed foods and stationery to kids and clothes to their parents.
Now it was time to reach at “Nalsarovar” as everyone was quite hungry. We drove our bikes above 80km/hour it was a crazy time but had a fun too. We reached at 12:00 to Nalsarovar. We parked our vehicles. There is some regular arrangement of lunch at “Nalsarovar”. People at lake front offer unlimited lunch at Rs.50 on their small hut. We decided to enjoy it. We also agreed to take a ride around lake on boats after lunch. After visiting a small island and beautiful birds on lake we were ready to back at 3:00 PM.
As per our plan, we choose another route this time. It was for “Sanand”. We found many poor people and needy pupils on the way. We were moving forward and giving clothes, foods and stationery to villagers on the way. Finally at 5:00 we all reached to Sanand and everything we had to distribute was over. Around by 7:00 we all came to Ahemedabad.
It was a great Joy of giving for all of us and huge fun too.
