A whole week to experience the joy of giving

Rotary Coimbatore Central will organise ‘Aram Seyya Virumbu’, here on October 5 and 6 to mark the ‘Joy of Giving Week 2013’.

The annual festival of giving is observed from October 2 to 8 throughout India and this year will witness 900 events spread across 70 towns and cities. The Club is hosting the week in Coimbatore.

 ‘Aram Seyya Virumbu’ will be held at Sarojini Nataraj Auditorium and will consist of stalls put up by social service organisations.

Those involved in activities involving women’s welfare, environment, sanitation, healthcare, education, rural development, child welfare, physically and mentally challenged children, senior citizen welfare, etc., will participate.

Public who visit the stalls, can contribute in cash or kind or enroll to work as volunteers for any of the organisations.

 “The whole week is dedicated to the spirit of giving. The event is specially organised to provide a platform for service organisations and donors to come face-to-face.

The organisation representatives will get a chance to talk to the visitors about their work and those interested can decide either to donate at the venue or later during special occasions. There will be opportunities for the visitors to sponsor a surgery, a child’s education, enroll as blood donors, or as a volunteer in any organisation. For those who would not be able to visit the event in person, there would be an option of contributing by buying fund-raising coupons worth Rs. 100 each that the organisers were selling through their representatives and college students.

A booklet, complete with details about the organisations, would be distributed to visitors to enable them contact the former at any convenient date.

The Club is also looking at collaborating with corporates, police, Armed Forces, colleges and schools, to make the event reach many people.

Cultural programmes by differently abled children, music programmes by college bands, debates, will be held in the evenings on both the days.

Those wishing to be part of the ‘Joy of Giving Week’ can call Mr. Vidyashankar on 98943-23217 / Mr. Krishnakumar on 98422-30365; or e-mail tojogcbe@gmail.com
