Birthday Philanthropist
Donate Rs 1000/- or USD 20 or related currency to
Developed Nation Network Trust to ensure your name appears on your birthday as Birthday Philanthropist because our idea is not money to us, but the whole thing is you should be a philanthropist on your birthday at least.

Yes, you donate on any day which may not be your birthday. It can be before your birth date or after your birth date or birthday of your child or in memory of your parents or independence day of your country or UN observation day like World Braille day.

Donate just Rs 1000/- or USD 20/- to DNNT which shares your Birthday because you are then born as Philanthropist, so Birthday Philanthropist.

And its not that only individuals can donate. You can be a corporate or NGO or Funding Agency or Media or Ad or PR or Research agency or association ... we can share your name and link it to your organisation on the day your organisation is registered because that is the Birthday of your organisation.

But if you want to donate to organisation in your country, we value that because we want you to donate. If you donate to organisation besides DNNT, then that organisation can donate only Rs 1000/- or USD 20 to DNNT if you want your name in the calendar because we plan to donate millions of Rupees in India.

DNNT has 80 G and FCRA, so it can accept donation from any country. And you can tell us to which NGO or to which issue your donation should be given because DNNT will give 100% of the amount it receives to the NGO (We say this because Banks charges if the donation comes from any country out side India, so DNNT receives less than USD20 ). Of course the NGO should be from India because DNNT can donate only in India.

But we are fine even if we dont get any donation and are not part of Birthday Philanthropists in our calendar because we respect your decision.

And yes, on any day, we share Birthday Philanthropists alphabetically, and next to their name, we share country they are citizen of with link to that country or island

Events of the day
Kisan Divas
23 December is celebrated as Kisan Divas or Farmers’ Day to commemorate the memory of Chaudhary Charan Singh, whose life reflected his peasantry background and he understood problems of the farmer and did his best to help them.

The plight of farmers in India has been very miserable in present-day India and they have always been at the receiving end since Independence. Their hard toil fetches them nothing except fake assurances from the dispensations at the helm. It’s sad and unfortunate that people who are indispensable for the growth of nation have been left to their fate. This is quite evident from the suicide cases in Maharashtra, Andhra and other parts of the country including West Bengal. In state like UP middlemen and Mandi officials ensure that the farmers turn into object of grief. The need of the hour is implementation of schemes introduced by the government. This can take place effectively if the village panchayts are provided more power to execute them in smooth manner.

There is a need to equip farmers with latest technological accessories that augment the prospects of better output and thus make their contribution more prominent in the global economy. Better results could be attained if information centers having state-of-the -art facilities are set-up inside each village that shed light on issues related with farmers. Let’s not forget that they form the backbone of the nation and so it becomes imperative for us to be conscious of their needs. Both the Central and state governments should come out with plans, which prevent the farmers from being swayed by negative market forces.

Blood donors (Blood of Philanthropy)
Blood donation shows you have blood of philanthropist.
Why instead of billions of people who can donate blood only few millions donate it and the same person donates again and again (like Piyush Kapadia has donated blood 68 times till 23.09.2023)

We understand if one is below 18 ot above 65 years or has bigh or low BP or diabetes or HIV or any other medical challenge when she or he cant donate blood. But millions of potential blood donors fear blood donation maybe because they think wrong thinking it is blood loss, but they must know that their body thanks them and they get fresh blood from their own boday immediately.

We have failed to understand that when people pay taxes to their Government, or pay to their Chartered Accountant who tells them where to invest or where to save or pay doctors or pay huge amount for Shopping or have far expensive parties, why cant they donate at least 1 bottle of blood once in life ? It should be once every year.

Thanks to Bhau's Gift of Knowledge of Blood donation, founder donated blood 3 times in 2022. So its not difficult.

Your Blood donation may help the blood receiver see the next birthday.

And yes, donate blood in your country and not to any specific Blood Bank in India. If the blood banks from any country gives names of blood donors & donation day of blood to us, we will share the the Blood donors name not on their birthday but blood donation day.

Blood banks should mail to Datacentre@CSRidentity.com
