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.


Reconnect with an old friend.

Even if you read status updates of your friends on social media, your friend would be absolutely delighted to receive a call or personal message from you. Get in touch with an old friend and discover the joy of reconnecting!

Especially if you have a friend who is also a mentor or guru, wish them on the occasion of Guru Poornima!


Leave toys for children in a public park.

Do you remember the joy of receiving a toy in your childhood? Relive that moment by leaving toys for children in a public park. Children find joy in the simplest of toys and find unimagined ways of turning them into multi-purpose objects. Just do this little act of kindness and experience the joy of sharing! With just 3 months to go for the big day of giving, #GivingTuesdayIndia on Oct 8, these little acts of generosity can help you and your loved ones come up with your celebration ideas for #GivingTuesdayIndia!
Happy Giving!


Buy tea/coffee or a snack for a co-worker.

Everyday is a great day to give but Tuesdays in the run up to #GivingTuesdayIndia are all the more special to show you care for those around you! Start a conversation over chai or coffee with a colleague. If you are at home due to rains or you work from home, just carry some coffee or tea for workers in the neighbourhood.
