Vidyun Goel: General Secretary, Toy Bank
“It all started with a question to my parents when I was young: what we do with the toys I don’t want anymore? My parents taught me to give it to those who can’t afford toys. The act remained in my heart since then. The smile on the face of the neighborhood kid left me overwhelmed when I was 7. Then one day, my dad shared his vision to multiply the same smiles by distributing toys to the under-privileged children. The idea fascinated me to the core and an unsaid commitment bound me to this project. My friends and I have been working part time to recycle smiles by recycling toys….
We interacted with various schools, RWA, localities to donate toys; then appropriately recycle them. This was the most difficult task and consumed the maximum amount of our time. However, the joy and smiles shared by kids while distributing toys has been the most rewarding and encouraging driving force to work for The Toy Bank”

“Working with The Toy Bank was exceptionally enriching experience. It taught me how pleasing it is to give back to society. It also taught me that there are numerous efficient ways one can contribute to the society.
It is rightly said the journey is more important than the end. The journey with The Toy Bank has also been rocky and difficult. But the overwhelming joy in child’s eye and enormous happiness in child’s simile has kept my spirits high.
This endeavor has been successful with great support from all our donators and supporters which includes parents who have encouraged their children to be kind in sparing toys…”
