Luxe Social Responsibility
Our 9th Founder’s Day
   
  • Gift-A-Gift: Our team decided to bring a smile on the faces of children from Project Arman, set-up by NGO Chintan Environmental Research and Action Group (http://www.chintan-india.org/). We collected money and bought sketch books and set of crayons and gifted 100 sets of these to Ms. Panchali, Head Operations. Accompanying her was Salma, and filed officers Mr. Gaurav and Mr. Rajneesh.

  • Blood Donation Camp: A usual feature for last 7 years, we all joined together in donating our blood and helping saving lives of the needy ones. There was much bonhomie and encouraging words as the donors smiled and lined-up to donate blood to the Rotary Blood bank.

  • Sponsor a Child (Deepalaya): The whole team of Luxe India joined hands with our parent organisation Le Passage to India to contribute wholeheartedly to the pan-India collection of money that was duly doubled by a matching contribution from our Company. The collection far exceeded the requirement for renewal for the annual sponsorship of 12 differently abled and 4 normal children of NGO Deepalaya. Rtn. Mathew, CEO Deepalaya and Ms. Sangeeta, heading the special children unit received the cheque on behalf of all colleagues of Le Passage to India. With an increase of 100% over last year, we have thus 20 children in our folds this year.

  • Surplus Collection: The balance amount is now being utilized to make a lump sum gift of artificial limb/caliper to the Jaipur Foot organization within this month and we hope to bring ‘smiles’ to quite a few amputees in addition to our children, as well. We shall keep you posted on that soon.
   
  • Sponsored Lunch at Gurukul: It has been a tradition to sponsor the midday meal on our Foundation day at the Gurukul in Gautam Nagar, about 3 Kms from the Haus Khas office. This Gurukul is a grooming school for children from less privileged backgrounds into the realm of religious and Vedic education. These children eventually become the ‘pundits, acharyas and shastris’ (religious teachers) in Hindu temples and spiritual education institutions. This year again, lunch was sponsored for the 225 inmates including the wardens. The Company also donates an item as per the Gurukul wish-list, and this year it was two steel cupboards for storage of utensils.

  • Old Clothes Collection: The day is also used to pre-collect old clothes which any colleague wishes to donate to an NGO. The entire collection is then formally handed over to NGO Goonj, which is one of India’s premier NGO in this type of social service.

  • Personal Pledges: Shaping Lives introduced this small self initiative for this Foundation Day. Any colleague could just make a commitment to ‘be there’ in cash or time should any emergency arise at any one of our affiliate NGOs. Few of us from Luxe India donated personally so as to sponsor children at a personal level, as their show of commitment on Foundation Day.
