~ Marking the occasion of our 69th Republic Day, we decide to connect common man of our country to our Guardians i.e., Our Soldiers. We spread the awareness about importance of Soldiers and made people express their views for them by writing letters. Below activities were carried out –
~ 1. Digital campaign through FB, WhatsApp and Email between 24 - 29 Jan.
~ 2. Samarthnam Trust - We visited the trust on 25th Jan and spend sometime with differently abled kids. We briefed the kids about our Soldiers and collected messages/drawings from them. The excitement of the kids can be seen in the drawings they made.
~ 3. Ejipura Govt. School - We visited the school on 26th Jan and were part of Flag hoisting & Republic Day Celebration. We distributed chocolates to the school kids and continued with our letter writing campaign for our soldiers.
~ 4. Decathlon Crew & Sony World Signal – On 25th Jan & 26th Jan resp, we made general public write letters for our soldiers. Old, Young, Business students, Auto Drivers etc. everyone came forward for the initiative.
~ 5. Military Area, Banaswadi - All the letters collected from above were given to the soldiers on 27th Jan. We even had meeting with the Colonel, head of the area who were very happy with this initiative. Thank You letter from his side says it all. We also met few soldiers and thanked them individually. Together we got the opportunity to meet and thank our Soldiers.
