The Joy Of Gifting During Christmas


In the true spirit of bringing cheer, which is really the cornerstone of Christmas celebrations, various corporates went out of their way to spread joy, especially amongst children.

SMAAASH hosted a Christmas party for the children of Muskaan Foundation, a NGO dedicated to the people having multiple disabilities.

Smiling faces were witnessed at the cannon shooting, ball pool, creative slides and at the other activities present. The little ones of the foundation were also treated to some delicious goodies and sweets.

Jubilant FoodWorks Limited (JFL), master franchise of Domino’s Pizza and Dunkin’ Donuts in India, made this Christmas special for underprivileged children by organising a delicious pizza treat for them. As part of the Christmas celebrations, JFL employees also organised special activities for children that doubled the joy of festivities for them.

The activity was carried out in Delhi and Mumbai and around 2300 children were part of the celebrations. It was organised in partnership with various NGOs in the cities. The employees spent quality time with the children understanding their aspirations and engaging them in fun filled activities thus spreading the Xmas spirit and fervour.

Santa Claus too is in the city in an initiative by 1 SmallStep Foundation to bring the joyfulness among young and old, rich and poor, bold and beautiful at Marine Drive, Kemps Corner, Churchgate, Dadar, Mahim, Bandra, Chembur, Ghatkopar, Sion, Matunga, Andheri, Thane, Powai, Malad, Kandavali .

The idea of giving back to the society has been embraced by 15 Santa’s who are volunteering to paint the city red, and also have Nitasha Biswas, India’s first Miss Trans Queen will spread Christmas happiness in Delhi.

Via social media crowdfunding kindness has been gathered by people who have generously filled Santa bags with chocolates, cookies, muffins, biscuits, cakes, stationary such as crayons, drawing books, fancy pens & pencils, shawls & blankets to the elderly.

It is this occasion that celebrates happiness, gifts, love and much more. In our own small way, each of us can be a Santa and gift a better tomorrow to the underprivileged and less fortunate than us.
