As Daan Utsav 2017 is just round the corner, we hope that your celebration plans are in place. Below are few events that students can organise in their institution/community.
More Daan Utsav options for students:
- Wish Trees for Bhumi– It can be set up in a reception, near the canteen/cafeteria or at any place which is frequented by the students/staffs. The aim is to get people to pick up the ‘wishes’ from the tree and donate the amount.
- Public Performances for causes – Dance, music, theatre: students can take co-curriculars out into the streets during Daan Utsav and raise awareness for causes they feel strongly about.
- Fundraising – The college could choose a particular cause, and its students can then create fundraising campaigns. Students have to mobilise their own network of friends, family, and relatives to be able to complete the challenge in a given number of days.
- Donation stalls + Selfie Booths – Students bring items from home/self create products and put them up for sale in the campus. While people buy the items, they can put a happy dot and click a selfie to post on their social media.
- Clean squad – In Clean squad drive, a group of students can together undertake cleanup activities in their neighbourhoods, including painting walls, fences and beautifying the area.
- Volunteering – Daan Utsav could be a good opportunity for young people to engage in some hands-on volunteering with Bhumi. Students can register here to volunteer for Daan Utsav events.
If students have exams around Oct 2-8, but not now, the planning and preparation can be done by Sep 30 and they can have simple activities to do during the week like-
- Collection drives– students can bring a specific item to college on one designated day (say, Oct 3) – e.g., pencils, pens, notebooks, bags, backpacks, etc., which can be collected and donated through through Bhumi. This will actually take very less time.
- Selfies for a cause– students donate small amounts (Rs10-50) to take a selfie with a funky exam related message like “Worst exam ever!” or “I managed to pass” and proceeds go to a cause that you choose. This will take students less than 5 minutes and not distract them from their exams.
- Participating in the Fourth Ambit #DaanUtsav contests – students can participate in the film making, social entrepreneurship and recipe-making contests that are live here. Last date for entries is Sep 30, 2017.
