eRevMax, the leading hospitality technology solutions provider, has partnered with Kolkata based NGO Hope Kolkata Foundation to extend support to celebrate ‘Daan Utsav’ – an initiative that encourages the joy of giving.
Employees of eRevMax have enthusiastically volunteered and contributed generously to help the underprivileged children by sponsoring one month’s ration to one of Hope Kolkata Foundation’s protection home.
By encouraging and enabling employee volunteering, eRevMax brings together people and good causes to create a wave of change. Daan Utsav was celebrated at eRevMax’s Kolkata office from 2nd October to 4th October. Volunteers from various departments took an active interest and donated one month’s dry ration for the noble cause.
“Hope Kolkata Foundation is very pleased to be working with eRevMax for the all-round development of street children in Kolkata. eRevMax is one of our new partners who have taken keen interest in working closely with the kids at our protection homes. The team has been conducting various activities and has wholeheartedly supported us through Daan Utsav,” said Geeta Venkadakrishnan, Director, Hope Kolkata Foundation.
Commenting on the initiative, Udai Singh Solanki, Managing Director & CTO at eRevMax said, “Daan Utsav is not just about tangible but also intangible human aspects, like empathy and compassion. We, at eRevMax, have always believed in sustainable efforts, rather than one time support. We are proud to be a partner of Hope Kolkata Foundation and delighted that it would bring happiness to little faces. We have received overwhelming response from our employees, who have been more than generous with their contributions.”
Launched in 2009, Daan Utsav is India’s annual ‘festival of giving’. Celebrated every year, in the week including Gandhi Jayanti (October 2-8), it brings together people across the country to participate in their own ways and give back to the society.
