Cup Cake Eco Friendly Ganesh.... #cupcakesganesha
3000 cupcakes were made by 100 Mumbai Home Bakers to make Eco friendly cupcake Ganesha. The cup cakes were later distributed among the underprivileged children. This was the brainchild of Rintu Kalyani Rathod, and was executed by the Food Army team, who had made Chocolate Ganesha last year which was dissolved in milk and distributed among the underprivileged children. There were many volunteers who in many ways opted to help in this noble cause. Some of the volunteers provided the raw materials in terms of chocolates, sprinklers, food colours.... Some of them made Ganache. Some of the volunteers opted to pickup cupcakes for different destinations and get it to the venue. Some came to help at the venue a day before and on the day of the event too.
The cupcake Ganesh was open to the public on Sunday 6th September 2015 from 10 am to 6 pm at Ramkrishna Mission Khar. This event was inaugurated by the Ramkrishna Mission Sawmiji, Swami Sarvalokananda Ji. There was a blood donation camp put up at the venue.
The day was packed with activities for the volunteers. The volunteers packed around 300 gift bags and food boxes during the afternoon break to give away to the underprivileged children.
Some of the B.M.C school children were invited at the venue. There was magic show put up for the children in the evening.
The public began to pour in for the darshan. No one went back empty handed, Prasad was distributed to all the devotes. The atmosphere was filled with devoutness.
After the magic show, Aarti was conducted by one of the Bramhachari Maharaj from Ramkrishna Mission.
This was followed by Visarjan. The event came to an end by distributing books, bags, water bottles, eatables and cupcakes to the children.
Later on the extra cupcakes were distributed to other underprivileged schools and other poor children.
This experience left me in high spirits..
