#GivingTuesdayIndia | My Giving for #MyBetterBharat | a #DaanUtsav celebration

Help Digitally Deprived Students and Women to Continue their Education in And after COVID-19.

Dharma Bharati Mission is a Mumbai-based non-profit NGO that aims to help the underprivileged women and children in slum areas by providing them with the education that is a stepping stone to a better life. They are constantly working with our team to provide them, online classes, through smartphones and free internet packs and they don’t want to stop here because of low funds. They will need 200-250 phones quarterly. The maximum cost will be a 6,000/-per phone.

Help missing children get reunited with their families!

Have you wondered what causes young kids to hang around at railway stations? There are many children across India who run away from home for trivial reasons. Several children who are abandoned by their guardians and several go missing mysteriously. These children feel totally helpless when they come face to face with the overwhelming railway network. This Tuesday let your random act of kindness help reunite these railway children with their families.

Spread kindness among the less fortunate and put a smile on their faces!

This week Rohit Thukral reminisces with us about his #MyGivingStory as a young child during Diwali.
Rohit firmly believes that happiness lies in helping the people around us and not in the pursuit of money. He is deeply saddened in the misconception that many people hold - more money equals more happiness. He hopes that his story can help spark something in all of us to be a little more compassionate and spread kindness.

Your purchase will help underprivileged patients with life-saving medical care!

This Diwali spread happiness and support underprivileged patients and their families.

GuideStar India Transparency Key certified NGO Janshakti Chetna Foundation has beautifully and lovingly crafted diyas and copper bottles for sale. All proceeds will go to helping underprivileged patients and their families fight the evil plaguing them and give them a chance at survival.

Over 1.7 million people engaged in acts of giving thru campaigns and messages, since India joined the global movement in 2017. Get your every act of giving counted using #GivingTuesdayIndia in all your social media posts.

185 million+

Millions of everyday givers make donations that add up to create a big impact. This number is the funds raised through campaigns using #GivingTuesdayIndia, since launch in 2017. Actuals would be higher as all do not report numbers.

In-kind Gifts Collected

It’s hard to measure and report one single number across the various gifts people give, collect and distribute. We will aggregate and share whatever is reported by campaign organisers and NGOs.


We request all campaign organisers to share their feedback about lives impacted so that we can try to understand the impact of our collective efforts to spread generosity.
