Joy of Giving – Blood Donation Camp At Ecosmob

CSR - Blood Donation Camp

CSR – Blood Donation Camp

We all know that giving something to someone gives much more satisfaction than getting something. May be because by getting something the only person gets happiness is you, but by giving something you make not only yourself happy, but also someone else. 🙂

Ecosmobians believe in the joy of giving and always stay ahead to do something for the society. This time we had a blood donation camp as part of our CSR activities. This time Ecosmobians decided to help those kids who are suffering with the malady of thalassemia. A team of Ecosmobians conducted a camp with the help of an NGO, namely, Prathama Blood Centre where people can donate their blood.

Each Ecosmobian came forward to take part in this initiative. Though a few ecosmobians like me had to be disappointed because we couldn’t donate blood due to certain issues 😦 But we contributed in other possible ways like helping people in filling up forms. We are happy to see a few volunteers came forward for the noble cause. A few Ecosmobians also visited the nearby shops and streets to spread awareness and get a few more donors. We are glad to collect 32 blood unites and looking forward to have such campaigns again in future.

We are thankful to all those volunteers who contributed to this cause. We are also thankful to Prathama to make our thought true. They also provided bags to the donors as a token of appreciation. We appreciate the efforts they are putting for the people in need.

I would like to share a few facts which I learned during this campaign. A few people do not donate blood due to various fears. I would like to tell you there is nothing to get scared of. Donating blood will not make you weak or sick. In fact, it contributes to your health in a positive way. Regular blood donation reduces the accumulated and unwanted iron load from the body which reduces the chances of Ischemic Heart Diseases (beginning of heart problems). A few people also think that you donate it for free and they are selling it. There is a reason they charge for it. The blood you donate is raw blood, which can’t be used directly for anyone. That blood gets processed and preserved, which is an expensive process. So you can say that the price anyone pay for a blood bottle is the expenditure blood bank had in blood processing and preservation. Hope this burst the myths and biases, in case you have any. I also hope that at lease some of you get inspiration to save a life by donating blood.

Ecosmobians Exhilarated By Breathing With Shwas

Ecosmobians take part in various activities and events to contribute towards society as part of their CSR activities. On last Saturday, Ecosmobians went to support a local NGO, called “Shwas – Breathe Life Into”. The NGO is supporting underprivileged children to get better education and improved life. The NGO is started by a group of volunteers and they started various activities to encourage underprivileged kids to achieve their dreams. The Shwas has enrolled the children into schools and also teach them on a daily basis in their area by taking private classes. The NGO encourages people to support these children by paying their fees via NGO or directly to the school. The NGO also arranges various events to collect donation which is used for the education of the children and also to generate awareness about the cause amongst people.

This time the NGO had arranged an event under which they had established a food stall and painting exhibition at B.K.School of Management, Ahmedabad. The paintings were painted by one of the kids. The team of Ecosmob Technologies went at a food stall as volunteers. The Ecosmobians supported the cause in all possible ways, including, taking active participation at the stall; Collecting donation from the visitors; Buying one of the paintings and donating the fund collected at Ecosmob. It was a great experience for us to be part of such a noble cause. We also appreciate the initiative of “Shwas-Breathe Life Into” for doing such a noble cause. A few of our Ecosmobians are also looking forward to be an active part of it and help the kids in all possible ways.

There is also something I would like to share which the Ecosmobians had experienced there. A very few visitors were happy to help while a few visitors was not really interested to buy a food packet of just 25 Rs. I assume the majority of people who were there might spend 100 bucks on watching a movie or having some light snacks just like that. Excuse me if there is some genuine reason those visitors had to not to support the cause. I think we can at least do a bit by buying a single food packet, or buying a painting which will not only encourage a child, but will support the future of the underprivileged kids. According to me, we used to hesitate to donate due to various reasons. One of them can be a doubt that the donation might not reach the right people, but the matter of fact here is the Shwas NGO encourages to directly pay the fees into the school if you have any doubts. In such scenario, there is a least possibility to have doubts. I am not saying to donate blindly to anyone, but at least try to check the details and support the NGOs which are genuinely doing something good for the people in need. I wish after reading this article, next time more people will donate or support such social activities and activists. If you are encouraged to contribute to the betterment of those kids via Shwas, here is the Facebook page URL where you can get more details https://www.facebook.com/ShwasBreatheLifeInto
