HT City - - LIFESTYLE - San­chita Kalra san­chita.kalra@htlive.com

As you get set to cel­e­brate Di­wali, how about also spread­ing cheer in oth­ers’ lives? One way to make the fes­ti­val an un­for­get­table af­fair for un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren is to be a part of an on­go­ing cam­paign in Saket.

Select CI­TY­WALK mall in part­ner­ship with Choose Hope: Ful­fill­ing Dreams has tied up with NGO Project Sun­shine for a 10-days, 10-chil­dren, 10-wishes cam­paign called Khushiyon Ki Di­wali.

“We wanted to make this year’s Di­wali truly mem­o­rable for th­ese kids,” says Jaideep Singh, co-founder of Choose Hope: Ful­fill­ing Dreams. “Luck­ily, Select CI­TY­WALK of­fered us a chance to ex­e­cute it. This 10-day ac­tiv­ity, on till Oc­to­ber 15, is a live crowd­fund­ing of the wishes th­ese kids have made. We wel­come ev­ery­one to visit the mall and con­trib­ute their bit,” adds Singh.

Broth­ers Gau­rav (6) and Vishesh (10) want to meet crick­eter Vi­rat Kohli and watch him play in a sta­dium. Var­sha (10) wants to go to Agra by flight to see the Taj Ma­hal, and San­deep (13) dreams to take a hot air bal­loon ride. Yo­gesh­war Sharma, CEO and ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, Select CI­TY­WALK says, “We spend so much money on Di­wali, but this is the cause we should con­trib­ute for. It feels great to spread love and smiles!”
