#AtoZ Challenge 2016: Letter N for Noble Causes

Greetings People,
For Letter N I will be posting a few photographs I had the privilege to click while being part of the Noble Causes.
Om Sai Old age home, Dombivali
In January I offered to join the social initiative  called Helping hands started by my collegue and friend. We paid a visit to Om Sai Old age home to meet its residents on the eve of 26th January. Had a satisfying time & hope to volunteer for more such activities.

Mast Santa organised by JAMMs
 In October I joined a Mummy's networking group who are a totally no-nonsense, support and empower womens group. The first event I was part of was the Mast Santa. We were encouraged to fill our discarded purses and bag with toiletries and edible items and then donate these bags to the women on the street. Thus empowering them to have basic items of daily needs. The response was superb but more than that the Smiles of gratitude on the faces of the street side women was the best return gift last Christmas.

Diwali Dinner

The little volunteer and his smiling receiver of gifts

Mumbai's Biggest Diwali party ! This was no hot-shot party in a swanky Hotel. This was a Party held ever year for special kids and orphans at the Maha lakshmi Race course. A lot of NGO's and their kids are invited to the party where they have a sit-down dinner and are gifted with all the things they would need from pencils, toiletries, books, chocolates.... & crackers ! The Smiles actually lighted up our Diwali that year in 2010.

Hope to actively be part of such activities more often.

This was our post for Letter N:

Coming right up is Letter O !
