Give Birthday Gift

Birthday : Its the day when you were born. Assume its a Gift to the Earth given by your Parents.

On your Birthday, gift Rs 3650/- to an NGO or community.
Rs 3650/- came from the fact that a year has 365 days, so it can be Rs 365/- or Rs 3650/- or Rs 36500/-
Of course the financial currency is different in countries and one can give equivalent amount .....

Whether you are a Christian and celebrate Christmas, Hindu and celebrate Diwali, Muslim and celebrate Id or of any religion (including the religion of Truth which our founder believes is his religion), it is likely that you, your family, friends, colleagues celebrate your Birthday. Its an easy day or date you remember.

Worldover, there are people who observe charity days (in India, new festival, Daan Utsav was started by Venkat) but that day or week may not be suitable for someone may be because it clashes with exam period of students or holiday period of schools where one goes out of location for a trip or whatever ....

Our founder told Venkat that he should start Daan Utsav in all countries and we will promote the concept.
But his priority is India.

So on 6th October 2018, when our founder was with Rohan to get a Japanese Cake for his second son Aum who likes it very much, he thought that instead of celebrating it on a given day which may not suit people across the world, he should start something which many people in this world anyway celebrate. And this is their birthday (January 1 is celebrated worldover as the first day of the year but some religions have their own first day of the year. But birthday is just one day and you may celebrate it as per English calendar or your religion calendar).

So he started thinking of the name.
He thought that Birthday Gift should be the first two words.
Say Birthday Gift Give or Birthday Gift donate ..

But the idea came from the thought of Venkat's idea of DaanUtsav.
And Venkat started Give India much before Daan Utsav.
So our founder who worked in Advertising & PR started thinking.

His first thought was sort of a message : Birthday Give Gift
But his advertising mind thought this was sort of an order to give gift on birthday. It was not good advertising.
He knew something very simple which even a child understood, or someone elderly who never had the opportunity to learn in school should understand.
Then he thought of Give Birthday Gift.
And he thought it may be simple but it was clear and good. And everyone can understand it.

Yes, Give Birthday Gift may look as an order. So Please Give Birthday Gift looks better sentence.
But we think that if one says please, people will listen to it and many will neglect it.
And we know 1 billion people live Below the Poverty Line and we know Climate change is happening faster.

We read about floods, droughts regularly... so days of request are gone long time back.
Its order but its a gentle reminder order

e.g. when one forgets to pay tax or doesnt pay it knowingly, the government can order payment.
But if the government official says ... just a gentle reminder that you were supposed to pay tax and the deadline is over.
May be you have forgotten the date because you seem to be too busy doing lots of things .. so just a gentle reminder.
If we hear that we know what that official means by saying Gentle reminder.

And we can say ... oh, sorry, I will take care of paying tax ... thanks for reminding me.

Now the sentence starts with Give, which is what Venkat started.
So its important that we recognise the origin first.

So finally, our founder confirmed that the name is Give Birthday Gift.
And we started the idea from 13th October which is founder's wife Rohini's birthday.
Actually, 13th October was the day when Video conferencing to Municipal schools was planned for Hindustan Unilever's Lifebuoy. And it is good for child health. But Municipal Authorities told us on 5th October that they have to give that time for Disaster Management Session on 13th October 2018 with BMC Schools and we can do our Video conferencing on 27th October.

On 13th October, we thought we can visit Tribal school in Kokanipada or Bhinar, but it was too early (6th & 13th is small gap)
then we thought the gift should be such that billions can give - Gift to Blood Bank..
So we finally decided to give the amount to Late Wamanrao Oka Raktapedhi, a blood bank which is scientific blood bank.

On 13th October, Rohini thought that alongwith money, she should donate 1 bottle of blood.
Founder thought this was far deeper than his thought of just giving money.

When she alongwith Aum went to the Blood Bank, she was tested for Haemoglobin level and she was told that it was slightly less than what the blood bank accepts (This is why we say Late Wamanrao Oka Raktapedhi is scientific)
Founder did not know this.

When founder went to take her out for lunch, she said the donor is changed.
Founder thought it was a joke because he thought she meant that from non blood donor category, she has moved to blood donor category. Then she shared the scientific things. She told the blood bank to take Blood of her son Aum, who was happy to donate.

So one can give Rs 3650 or equivalent amount in their currency or less or more amount and alongwith that if one donates blood, it will be far far important.

While our founder was born on 8th August, he has started celebrating 28th August as his new birthday because he was reborn on that day (Not medically reborn but he survived an almost fatal accident on that day), so he can observe 8 & 28 August. So he will give it on two days. Interestingly 2 coincides with his concept that at least eveeryone should give 2% time & 2% money to this world or universe. And 2 numeric in 28 is just before 8 which is his birthdate, so again 2 is critical.

But 2 can be a numbers game.
Like founder plays game with number 8.
He says he was born on 8.8.1962
In 19, the difference between 1 and 9 is 8
In 62, take it as 6 + 2 which is 8
He was born at 8.35 which means 8 and 3 + 5 = 8 and
a week has 7 days, so he has passed the number of days of week by 1 ....
one can do various numerical games but the fact remains that
he requests people to give 2% time and 2% money to charity.

If you do this, the world can then be a good place to Live and Leave.


What you get as a Return Gift
Today, during parties when one gives a gift, she / he / transgender gets a return Gift.
Earlier, people never thought of return gift.
But now it is common, so much that if one doesnt give return gift, people say "What kind of person you are ?????"

So without applying mind, one tends to give return gift. But giving return gift needs money and we cant give money to billions of people in various countries.
We kind give in kind return gift, but we have an invaluable idea of thanking you.

If you really donate Rs 3650 or its equivalent in your country currency, we will say Thank you for the initiative to help those who help others.

But what more can we give you ?

Within a second, we thought that if the money is donated to Developed Nation Netowrk Trust, our NGO, this entire money will be used for Thane district, which is our global example of development. And Developed Nation Network Trust has FCRA as well as 80 G, so one can donate funds from anywhere in the world. And do it online so that you become climate positive by not using paper - cheque and courier needs paper - which indirectly means cutting trees.

Of course, we respect your right and you can give Re 1 or cent 1 or any amount in your currency by cash or by cheque or through bank transfer to whichever NGO / NPO that you are part of or you want to be part of or to poor or to your government or religious location or political party, donate on your birthday.

We dont directly involve ourself in politics or any particular religion but we want all talented people to help or oppose government not depending on your thoughts but depending on truth.

If the political party is your opposition party but the initiative is good, then support the initiative. And at the same time, if the initiative of your political party is not good for the world, then oppose it. And this is rarely done in politics.

We know politics is a numbers game many times, so what we will do is share links to the government schemes, links to political parties ... and the same goes with Corporates, NGOs, FAs, Media because each organisation has competition and politics is played even in a small housing society, small NGO ....

We admit that we can not put your name in the calendar date if you dont give it to Developed Nation Network Trust. But we think that the entire world needs to Develop and that is why we put the name Developed Nation Network Trust to our NGO in 2009 which is much before founder's almost fatal accident on 28.8.2013.

We want all nations to be Developed Nations not just economic development but overall development.

And again
whether you give money to us or to any chairty in the world, as a return gift you get SATISFACTION which
is invaluable gift.
