Celebrities to take joy in giving

These celebrities, along with several others from different walks of life, have not only promised to endorse the Week but also agreed to make specific contributions of time, skills, money and resources.

Conceptualised by 'GiveIndia', the initiative aims to get people from all walks of life together to engage in acts of giving -- money, time, skills or simple acts of kindness -- its Director Venkat Krishnan said here on Friday. Cricketer Rahul Dravid will deliver a talk (for which tickets would be sold) to business leaders offering his thoughts on the pursuit of excellence. "All proceeds from this talk will be donated to Dream A Dream, the NGO that I am supporting", Dravid said.

Prakash Padukone, the former All England Badminton champion, said Tata Academy, which he runs, would provide free orientation of badminton to 200-300 underprivileged children during the week.
