Joy of Giving


When children play there is no seven wonders of the world in their eyes but seven million. The play turns out to be so stunningly essential to childhood; it is like love, sunshine. Many children live under dark, sad shadow; they are deprived of those toys, games to play with. In a way they are not able to learn through play, they do not explore how to learn while playing. Orchids-The International School, Thane (OIST) chose to make their lives brighter by joining the hands with Ms. Shweta Chari, founder of toy bank. For giving back the right to childhood, with the only criteria of giving toys willingly, we have appealed to deposit in TOY BANK, only to withdraw more joy. On 28th June 2016, in the multipurpose hall the students listened attentively about the toy bank. With her convincing and interesting approach, she reached out to kids to motivate them for helping underprivileged by giving their board games, toys. The kids felt delighted to get opportunity to lend a hand to friends of their age from poor families. They wished; with their little efforts, they can make their jumping and jouncing friends’ days and nights filled with play, fun, laughter, and colours of toys and games. Such initiative from kind hearted, child friendly leaders- Dr. Madhuri Sagle, -The principal, Mrs. Shilpi Gupta, Vice Principal- promises the parents that their kids are bound to be developed as socially responsible citizens. Orchidians joyfully shoulder this responsibility and happily cherish the Joy of Giving. It is truly said that we make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give. Join with us to double the joy by sharing toys and board games.
