KSRTC director B N S Reddy unveiled the logo of ‘Joy of Giving Week’ at the JW Marriott Hotel on Tuesday. The week-long campaign starts from Wednesday.

Celebrated by a number of private corporations and NGOs annually from 2009, this seven-day festival, which is touted as India’s largest charity event, invites people from all walks of life to give back to society in their own way. Its promoters said that the campaign is an ideal platform for people to express support for causes close to their heart. They explained that it brings together Indians from across the country and abroad to help society through different means such as money, time, skills and resources.

Speaking at the launch, Reddy said, “The Joy of Giving Week is an excellent initiative, which helps us acknowledge our responsibility towards society.”

Parul Thakur, general manager, JW Marriott, and Rajan Narayanan, volunteer, Joy of Giving Week (Bangalore), spoke at the launch.

Raj Rajkumar, CSR Chair, TE Connectivity India and executive council member, Indo-American Chamber of Commerce, was also present at the event.
