It was the Joy of Giving Festival Week from October 2nd to 8th all over the the country. Children’s Movement for Civic Awareness (CMCA) volunteers from Bangalore South Zone felt it was a good idea to put up a sale and generate some funds for the activities of CMCA.

Apart from the usual gift items, there were loads of hand painted diyas, dupattas, sarees, wonderful homemade eatables like chaklis, kadale puri, cakes, chocolates, etc. on sale. Needless to say, it all disappeared in a jiffy and there was a demand for more!!
The sale was held at three places – at Jayanagar 9th block and at Mantri Elegance and Mantri Paradise apartments on Bannerghatta Road. Though it was exam-time in most schools, the enthusiasm and fervour of the volunteers was commendable.
