Wish Tree Event: Joy of Giving Week

wish_tree_360pxOct. 2-8, 2013 – Door Step School was invited to participate in the ‘Joy of Giving’ week by several corporate firms and at almost all firms, the event was a huge success. Infosys, Geometric Ltd., Credit Suisse, Mutha Towers, Sandvik, Fiserv,  and Oracle are some of the places where the Wish Tree was put up.  Employees of the various firms contributed generously and did their bit to fulfill the wishes of the children at Door Step School by picking up many wishes on the Wish Tree. There was interest amongst the employees to know more about Door Step School and the various ways that they could volunteer.

Door Step School appreciates and thanks all the corporate firms whole-heartedly for inviting us to put up the Wish Tree in their campus and all those who came forward, picked up wishes and helped to make the Wish Tree a truly Wish-fulfilling Tree.

A pivotal role was played by the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) leads at the various firms. Incidentally, most of the CSR leads are long-term Door Step School volunteers and they were instrumental in spreading awareness about the event, encouraging the employees to pick up wishes as well as helping out the volunteers.

Many thanks are due to the volunteers who spent an entire day and at some places more, to help with the Wish Tree event. Without their selfless efforts, the Wish Tree event wouldn’t have succeeded!
