THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: After the hugely popular Ice Bucket Challenge, it’s time for Rice Bucket Challenge ahead of Onam season. The campaign is being organised by Prathidhwani, a socio-cultural organisation of Technopark employees.

Techies can be part of this campaign by accepting the challenge to deposit rice packets of minimum 5kg in the bucket which has been placed at the entrance of main buildings in Technopark.

The buckets will be placed at Nila, Bhavani, Thejaswini, Gayathri, Leela, Chandragiri, Pamba, Periyar, Amstor and Technopark Phase 3. Those who deposit the rice packets can then challenge their friends to follow suit.

The rice collected will be distributed to the needy non-IT employees working in Technopark for Onam. The collection will be on from September 5 to 8. Prathidwani plans to distribute the rice kits on September 9.
