Event: Drape a Smile, Initiative by JAMMs

Good day People !
Happy Diwali Everyone ! May you have a fun-filled, prosperous, healthy Diwali :)

We are celebrating Diwali with much fan-fare. But there are some who cant afford a basic sweet on those 5days.
JAMMs has taken up an Initiative for the Woman of the House, to drape them in a Saree and give them something to deck up in this festive season. Our target is 910 sarees by Nov 14th, 2016.


One of the Initiative I was part of earlier with JAMMs:
Event: Mast Santa organised by JAMM's, one bag leading to empowerment

Drape a Smile, Initiative by JAMMs

DRAPE A SMILE – JAMM’s 5th Social Initiative 

JAMM’s unveils its latest social initiative ‘DRAPE A SMILE’, where all the ‘Mast Moms’ of the JAMM’s network are being encouraged to donate sarees for underprivileged women who are less fortunate than us. The goal is to collect 910 sarees to commemorate the 910 days that JAMMs network has been in existence.

Mothers from all walks of life know the meaning of the word ‘sacrifice’. Even the upwardly mobile metro dwellers have had to sacrifice their time and career at the altar of motherhood. But these underprivileged women give up so much more – to ensure their children and families have a happy Diwali, they slave away to make the basic sweets and use their meager savings to buy their children new clothes – there is seldom anything left for themselves. During a festival where new clothes are almost de rigueur; these women do without!

Almost all of us have some sarees packed away which we have never used, either because they were gifted to us and not quite our style, or merely because we don’t feel like wearing sarees. This is the perfect opportunity from JAMM’s to not just de-clutter your closet but do a good deed this festive season as well. 30 drop points have been set up across the city by volunteer moms to streamline the process of donating sarees. The saree donation drive will continue till 14th November 2016.

Think about it, this Diwali as a woman in some corner of the country is draping her new saree gifted by you she is also draping a smile on her face. That joy is simply priceless!

So collect all the sarees you havent used in a while and go drop them at the centers mentioned. I have collected a few, how about you? Glad to be part of JAMMs :)
