To do so, fundraising campaigns becomes a potential medium. One of the NGOs to fundraise for is The Akshaya Patra Foundation that provides school meals to government school children as well as undertakes food relief services.

Day in and day out,Guest Posting we hear and read about issues that blocks our society from making optimum progress. We also hear about individuals and organisations that are working to counter those obstacles and transform lives of direct beneficiaries and uplift the society as a whole. The inclination and commitment of such individuals and organisations reinstate that ‘giving back to society’ is not only a moral duty, but a social responsibility too.

How much to give?

Almost all of us would like to contribute to some or the other social initiative, and many of us are doing so already. In the space of charity, each contribution matters. Just like every drop of water makes the ocean, every donation facilitates the work of charitable organisations. For instance, if we are donating to a charitable organisation that strives to feed the hungry, they will be as much dependent on a ¹500 donation as on a ¹10,000 donation. What matters is ‘donate with all your heart’.

While we all want to be as generous as possible, there may be times when we may not be able to contribute the needed or desired funds. In such cases, online fundraising campaigns can be quite promising.
