17th Jan’15, Saturday morning, a brand new year started somewhat like this for us:
The joyful event of “Makar Sankranti” celebration at “Shriram Spandhana”, coinciding with a view of India’s indigenously built LCA’s acrobats near Domlur, was definitely a treat for AdalBdal.com. The crew of AdalBdal were really happy with Mr. Kulkarni, whose “Vada Paav” and Mrs Geetha’s parent’s stall of Laddoos, chakli and Poha kept our stomach bulge! How the three hours went by, we have no idea. From young couples, to the old, people who were visiting with their kids, all showed keen interest in what we do. In fact, we also met people who wanted to contribute through their business for our cause! All of the above, in a day’s notice!
The “Spandhanites” as they are called, are one of the warmest set of people that we came across; and it was their sheer enthusiasm which made us even more energetic after a hectic Friday! People donated bean bags (used sparingly by us at closure :P), clothes, toys, all of which, which we would now be giving to Karunashraya’s own shop!
They have now given us the confidence to keep going, in making AdalBdal a common portal that all the donors and the NGOs wanted. A platform, which can be used by our partnering NGOs to pick up stuff from the donors directly! The “Spandhanites”, are now, officially a part of AdalBdal!
So, do you want us to come to your Apartment Complex too? Don’t you want to give away the unwanted old stuff? You don’t need to go anywhere, we will come and pick it up for you!
Be a part of the revolution of giving, be happy and spread happiness, as Ben Carson had rightly said: “Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.”
