Giving Tuesday, an international day of giving, is observed every year on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving to encourage people and organizations into helping vulnerable communities around the world. Akshaya Patra is observing Giving Tuesday 2020 as a day of transformation – a way to educate people about the impact of their kind acts.

Every kind act will uplift, support and empower our mid-day meal beneficiaries across India. They’re currently missing the nourishing, freshly-served school lunches due to the closure caused by the pandemic. As a remedy, Akshaya Patra has launched the ‘Happiness Kits’ initiative to provide children with essential groceries to assist their development, ensure they’re healthy and prepared for a return to school.

This Giving Tuesday, we urge you to dedicate just one kind act - one noble gesture – to help us in our effort to support children.

Imagine the impact of a movement championed by 1.3 billion people!

How can you get involved?

  • Advocate: Be a voice against hunger, a brand ambassador for change
  • Fundraise: Have a Facebook account? Create a Facebook Fundraiser to help the effort

As the world mobilizes in support of various causes, we at Akshaya Patra urge YOU to join our movement.
