On a chilly morning on 25th January 2018, NGO Sarva Jyoti did their first Blanket Donation Drive for this year in a neighborhood park in E Block, Masjid Moth, GK3, New Delhi.
Blankets were distributed to the colony guards, car cleaners, Gardner's, part-time help, maids, domestic workers, laborers, vendors etc.
Sarva Jyoti set up a little table unit with the park bench, chairs, stools stuffed with blankets, flasks of masala tea and glucose biscuits for distribution. Helped by Kuku Kumar, Tanushree Joshi, Nitisha Jain, Pradeep Kumar, Rajkumar, Punam Singh and one of our adopted dogs Tara, who guarded the blankets against stray "swipes", we distributed @ the rate of 100 blankets per 10 minutes and our stock finished in half an hour!
We are happy at the thought of all those whose lives we brought a little warmth too.
Gratitude for the blanket contributions to Gourav Dubey, Savita Mankotia, Shilpa Khanna, Mansi Jaidka, Parul Sinha and Tanushree Joshi for their generous donations towards the Blanket Drive!"
