The Daan Utsav endeavors to inspire Indians across every state, city, region, class, religion and age to give back to society. It not only aims at encouraging people to give but also celebrates the notion of giving and the joy derived from it.

Launched in 2009 as a "Festival of Giving" across India, the Joy of Giving Week has brought together people from all walks of life. The Daan Utsav Week is wholly driven by a large group of volunteers from all over the country.

"Daan Utsav-1 think each of us has our own reasons to give. Some give because they don't need stuff anymore, some give because they are just generous and selfless and yet others give because it just gives them a pride of doing something, a selfish joy. I am of the 1st & 3rd kind, I am in no way generous but I truly enjoy the smiles people have when given something unexpectedly and the great sense of satisfaction I feel. Whatever the reason for your giving. Let's celebrate giving!!! Daan Utsav- The Joy of giving said Mr. Vijay Deverakonda - Actor, YevadeSubramanyam.

You celebrate DaanUtsav by doing an act of giving.
