Blog for a Cause

It is that time of the year ... Twestival time!

Twestival (24th March) is a single day, global movement which uses the power of social media to organize offline events that mobilize communities in support of local causes.

Here's your chance to use your blogging skills to help donate money to a cause.

Via Twestival India 2011
Have an opinion on the state of Giving in India? Do you think India needs more philanthrophists? Are the rich and famous of India giving away enough? Do you think that the middle class might be the most giving in terms of the percentage of their income?

Or do you simply have ideas on how to make people give more and better?

Then you can blog for a cause!

We are glad to announce this blogging campaign where you can express your opinion while at the same time contributing to a cause. We are happy to share that for every original blog that you write on the topic of "Giving", GiveIndia has agreed to donate a sum of INR 250 as grant to your favorite charity (from the Twestival India 2011 list of cities participating in online donations).

All you need to do is select the city/NGO you want to support from the list, and write a blog post on "Giving" with specific reference to the Indian scenario. Do alert us about your participation by leaving a comment below.

In the broad topic of "Giving", you have a wide choice to cover including:
1. Online Giving - Is it a fad? Will it work in India?
2. Is donating the only 'Giving'?
3. Are Indian charities doing enough to attract donors and helping them give?
4. Your ideas for making Giving easier and simpler
5. Volunteering as an option of Giving - Giving time, energy and efforts

Or you can write on any other topic under the subject of Giving in India.
Click here to read more and write your posts soon as the campaign ends on 25th March.
