The story of an NGO called ItsMyDuty

The employees and alumni of QBurst have a good virtual hangout, a perfect place for junks and craps!

In late October, a mail which claimed to be 'non-entertainment' in its subject line has proved it was serious once opened. Anooj was asking about helping needies in the city and neighborhood by accumulating cash from those who are interested. Many of us welcomed it and after a couple of days' discussion it was named `it's my duty.`

Many of us were interested in charity or working with some NGOs. Many of us were thinking about such moves. So this idea was hugely applauded.

In the beginning of the month volunteers collect cash from the members, only those who are interested need to donate. Activities are planned during weekdays in the virtual world, because we are spread over three offices and execute them in the weekends or public holidays.

Itsmyduty had few activities so far. The debut was on Nov - 06, the next day of Diwali, at Care Home in the city. Care home is a old age house. IMD volunteers went there and gave them the basic necessaries that will be useful for them.

Qburst guys at Cochin visited Karunalayam on the day of BakrId. It's a similar place for aged people.

There are little girls of age around 5 to diploma students at Good Shepherd girls' orphanage at Nagercoil. IMD brought them what they wanted the most. They didn't have sleeping mats, pillows, bedsheets, etc and notebooks, pen and pencils for the students. And of course some sweets too.

Here are some photos.
