Woke up this morning and began tweeting as usual, when a tweet by @b50 caught my eye.

It was about a drive started by Anaggh to contribute towards Goonj, a charity for ‘Educating the girl child’. Though initially slow to pick up, this is getting bigger and better, and now a whole bunch of tweeple have joined in to contribute to this cause.

Presently, the contributors are:

TOTAL Rs64.75

For each Diwali wish you make on Twitter with the hashtag #Deepwish, an amount of Rs.64.75 (currently) per wish will go to this charitable cause. As 18-Oct draws to a close, we’re at 476 wishes. Anaggh’s blog will have regular updates on this as well.

There is no limit to the number of tweets (wishes) you can send, so do join in. This drive ends on October 19th at 9 pm.


Update: #Deepwish is over, and saw 62 people reach out for this cause within 36 hours and raise Rs.55,000. Contributions can be sent directly to Goonj under intimation to @anaggh or @b50 on Twitter.
