Subject: Volunteering in the new year !
Happy New Year !
I am writing to see if any of you will be kicked about starting the New Year with a difference! One of my favorite organization "Down to Earth" is organizing an Interactive Games Day(IGD) event In Mumbai. For which we require your Sunday.. on 8th Jan.
This is the 5th year we are organizing the Interactive Games day. 400 kids from different schools and organizations come together to participate in the energizing, exciting team event. The aim is to get everyone be it young or old, involved! It's a fun filled day that
consists of making new friends, building
sportsmanship and developing self confidence. Additionally the children
are given an opportunity to nurture their leadership skills whilst participating
in team activities.

I have been volunteering for a few years now and I don't remember a time when the kids have enjoyed more than I have ! Really ! Trust me sacrificing a Sunday is nothing in comparison to the amount of fun that's in store !
So stop thinking about the one sunday morning sleep and join us ;)
