Posted By: Staff

Bangalore, Sep 5 (ANI): Cricketer Rahul Dravid graced a weeklong fund raising campaign called 'Joy of Giving Week' for the poor and downtrodden in Bangalore.

The scheme has been conceptualised by 'Give India' an organization, which works with voluntary groups all over the country.

The stars and celebrities from all walks of life including Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, former badminton player Prakash Padukone and corporate bigwigs have extended support to the cause.

"It is a great concept to get so many people together. It is not necessarily just about celebrities and the well known figures. It is really about each one of us, every one of us, in our own small way contributing during that week and just getting a movement together which is something that can grow into something really big in the years to come," said Dravid.

The weeklong scheme would include giving clothes to the needy, helping orphanages, providing school bags, health aid and educational support to the downtrodden. (ANI)
