They were ably assisted by the Temple and the District authorities
Lion members, led by the President Mr. Pawan Kumar Mishra, marched in and brought smiles to many faces, and pledged to continue to do as and when needed.
As Khalil Gibran said, “It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding. And to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving.”
We also thank all our benevolent donors who - without hesitation - dipped deep into their pockets to further this cause. There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
Principles to follow when making donations:-
1. Do not make eye contact with the receiver, Keep your eyes lowered.
2. Wear a smile (if not inappropriate)
3. Keep hands folded as and when possible
4. Keep your hands below the item that you are donating, not above. Like asking the receiver to accept, and not like you are giving.
