Write a letter of gratitude to your parent/ child/ partner/ teacher

Remember the joy of receiving a handwritten note? The feel of the paper, the smell of the ink, the beauty of the handwriting, smelling a leaf or a petal pressed against it, looking at a sketch (of emojis!), some glitter, trying to imagine the feelings of the writer for you? Just reading this post, do you find yourself smiling, thinking a sweet note or letter you received?

Ask five women in your family or office about places that make them feel unsafe. Make at least one place safer for each!  Do Random Acts of Kindness#GivingTuesdayIndia!

A simple act of asking women about places they feel are unsafe, would help you understand safety concerns of women. Small actions like adding a light bulb, keeping a door locked, having a door bell could increase safety!

Make your #MyTuesdayPromise! Decide to save some money Today and #EveryTuesday to give to your favourite cause on #GivingTuesdayIndia!

How much are you going to save to celebrate your generosity on #GivingTuesdayIndia? Saving a bit #EveryTuesday or everyday will help you do more for your favourite cause on Oct 8, #GivingTuesdayIndia 2019!

Take public transport, skip dessert, carry a water bottle, keep a re-usable bag handy for any shopping, pack your excess food for your next meal... did you notice that your acts of saving to give away, are also great for the planet?

Take public transport on your next trip and donate the saved money.

Has it been a while since you took public transport? Do it once #EveryTuesday to relive the old times, to travel with your colleagues/ friends, to be kinder to the planet... look around who needs help and use your savings to bring them some joy!


Have a bucket bath...Save water

One of the simplest ways to save water is to switch to a bucket bath! The water in your shower sometimes travels long distance denying access to local people near the water source. Think of people who walk several miles everyday to fetch water. Every drop is precious.


Make a pot of tea for the night watchmen.

Before you go to bed after a hard days' work feeling grateful for all the good things that happened to you during the day, spare a thought for the people staying awake for your safety, in your apartment complex, on your street, away from their families. Some of them are doing a second shift to earn a bit more for a child's education or parent's healthcare.

Surprise them with some "garam chai" and chat about their families.

Do a random act of kindness

Read/ Share acts of kindness using #GivingTuesdayIndia

We are so used to communicating through text messages... yes, there are several benefits in doing so. It gives the recipient the time to revert, it gives you the comfort that you are not disturbing the recipient, it is more actionable as the recipient can forward, open a link, respond to you, and it also gives the recipient the option to ignore.However, text messages lack the warmth and excitement of the spoken word and deprive the opportunity to have a conversation. A call gives you the chance to gauge the state of mind of the person you are calling and allows you to express empathy or elation.The next time you reach out to text someone, pause and pick up the phone! Call someone today and have a conversation. Make someone feel better and experience the joy in doing so!#EveryTuesday#GivingTuesdayIndiaMy Giving for #MyBetterBharat
