'SUPPORT CIRCLE'...Chari­ty begins at home.

Lets form a support family within the group and extend a helping hand to those amongst us, who are not so fortunate or blessed, or just be there in times of need/emergency.

Have you ever wondered how people living alone in a new city, away from their families or near and dear ones cope with everyday challanges of life?

Have you ever wondered why a member suddenly disappears from the group?
Have you ever looked at the sadness lurking in the eyes, behind a very happy smiling face?

Do you wish to be part of the SUPPORT CIRCLE?
Do you wish to be there for your fellow member in times of need/emergency?
Do you wish to feel good by helping a fellow member?

If your answer is a definite "YES", then come forward and VOLUNTEER

Become a 'HAPPY VOLUNTEEER' (committment & time is a pre-requisite to be enrolled as a HV)

We are looking for 10 'Happy Volunteers'(5 men & 5 ladies)

Objective
To act as a support to our fellow members (morally, emotionally, spiritually and whenever possible physically and financially) in times of need/emergency. To provide a circle of HV who could be approached/shall be accessible to give you that extended hand; to stand besides you; to give you a patient hearing or to act as a moral support.
Terms & Conditions apply:- they will be discussed in a meeting shortly once we have 10 confirmed and committed HV

Contribution:- Your Committment & Your Time

Agenda:- To discuss the guidelines & pre-requisites to be a Happy Volunteer and their responsibilities. Plus filling of the 'Registeration form' for a HV.

Suggestions are welcome

    One realises that the real worth of an individual is not measured by what he has or receives, it is through what he is able to give -lovingly and unconditionally. If this be so,why not we get together to touch lives of fellow friends in whatever humble way we possibly can ?
    I believe the Support Circles is indeed a laudable initiative. Lets join hands to make it a real success

    We are now 15 committed VOLUNTEERS. Friends all those who could not take out time to meet me in person are welcome to do so after the Birthday celeberation today evening. i am willing to stay back and meet some of you. Tejinder and Vanita have already confirmed meeting me after the event.
    Members please appreciate that 'SC' cannot be effective nor active without the support and participation of all members. we all have to believe in this....i hope i am not wrong in taking this initiative for the betterment and benefit of all Happy Group members. I know some of you are waiting on the sidelines using 'wait n watch' policy.....ha....which is understandable - but remember its the early bird that catches the worm...hi...hi...
    "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom"
    on this happy quote - have a nice day - and see you all today evening - 6 - 8 p.m. at Kapoor villa - hemkund colony.

    Thanks Anjali. As soon as I am in Delhi and little relaxed then we can talk and may be we can meet and discuss.

    'HELP' is a very expensive gift - so don't expect it from everyone - because very few people are 'Rich' by heart.....
    this is how the quote goes - but i know for sure we have very rich members in our group who have a great and very big and rich heart.......

    June 26, 2013

  • Arshad Ali F.

    Anjali I think you should have counted me too. Since I am in Kashmir and my Cell is not working I had not called you. As soon as I am in Delhi on 27th I would call you to re-confirm my participation. Nothing has been done about HAVELI..

    June 25, 2013

    • anjali d.

      Arshad sure- give me a call on return and we shall fix a meeting and thats when we can talk about 'Haveli' too.

    yes, its a responsibility, but for a very good cause and for our happy fellow members and where can you find a better platform than our group.....

      Bawa with 2800 happy members i am sure we dont need to do that - but your statement should be a cue to other members to come willingly forward and that too soon.

  • anjali d.

    Friends please remember that by initiating SUPPORT CIRCLE for and within the group we are not taking away the fun and frollic events. neither are we going to stop having wonderful events in future. This group USP is to bring happiness and joy and this another way of doing the same. The goal still remains the same.

    June 20, 2013

  • anjali d.

    sms'es; e mails; calls, further enquiries are pouring in and surprisingly from doormat and not so active members. Keep them coming and lets keep following them up with a personal meeting. i am sure by the end of the month we shall have a committed group of VOLUNTEERS for the SUPPORT CIRCLE.......This is much appreciated and will go a long way in helping some fellow member.

    June 20, 2013

  • anjali d.

    I must say kudos to 21 happy members who decided to join us inspite of continuous rain - thank you all for your participation; your thoughts and your opinions, and some very constructive insights. it was a very fruitful and interactive meeting with some regular and some new members.
    ALL THOSE WHO ARE KEEN ON REGISTERING THEMSELVES AS 'HAPPY VOLUNTEER' MAY CONTACT ME DIRECTLY.
    TO DO SO, YOU NEED TO BE A MEMBER FOR ATLEAST ONE YEAR AND ATTENDED ATLEAST 10 EVENTS AND HAVE THE EMOTIONAL MATURITY AND CONFIDENCE TO CARRY OUT SUCH A SENSITIVE RESPONSIBILITY.( please remember this is voluntary and honarary and of your own doing - the meetup group does not hold any responsibility towards its doing or undoings. You are willingly offering your time and committment.)
    I look forward to calls and meeting some very responsible and committed members towards this good cause and initiative.
    Thanks once again.

    Friends, the beginning is very good. i met 3 more volunteers yesterday. But i notice that some very active and senior group members who i expected to come forward are shying/are silent ,for whatever reasons. You are all requested to participate and contribute since we do not want to lose out on such good members. If you have any apprehensions/doubts or confused why the sudden seriousness being brought into a fun & frollic meetup group without discussing, i would appreciate if you pick up the phone and call me.....i assure you we have our reasons and we shall be able to convince you.......i know my phone is not going to stop ringing today and i shall be bombarded with calls from members wanting to volunteer.
    Come on friends - CHAKDE PHATTE.....this is a golden opportunity to give back to others and get lots of joy and happiness by just giving/sharing and being responsible.

    I have one suggestion I do not know whether members like it or not. Male members will request only male HV for any kind of help/emergency any time. Female member will request only female HV for any emergency and help and if female HV feels that she can not manage than she can take help from male HV.

    Friends, today i met 3 volunteers and i am glad to inform you that the outcome was productive and fruitful. I am confident that at this rate, by the end of the month we shall atleast have 20 committed volunteers as part of the Support Circle. Thank you for taking time out to meet me in person and for willingly offering your services for fellow members of this group. I am humbled by this positive beginning.
    Do mail me your ideas/inputs and suggestions. They are more than welcome and will go a long way in have a more comprehensive and focussed approach.

    I am soo happy that soo many members are coming forward to offer their volunteer services. yesterday i got 15 calls/mails/sms. Today morning when i switched on my PC i saw 3 detailed mails from members. Iam meeting 3 members today and 1 tomorrow. Do keep the calls and mails pouring in till the final selection. The basic human desire to reach out/extend help to another fellow human being is soo strong amongst us. My gratitude to all those who are making the efffort and even to those who still have their thinking hat on....Lets all make this happen and eventually put it on 'auto pilot'......inshallaha with all your blessings i am confident that this will bring a lot of joy and happiness in fellow members lives, but also benefit those they are associated with.

    for all the age group, who need to come out of depression, i can give workshops and talk show, on the basis of time tested, and world approved, sri gita, and all free of course. and those who want to be helped sitting at home, for them also we give online help by internet and phone.

    My suggestion is that lot of people just click the RSVP button that they will attend the meetup. But only 50% come. In that also 30% are old member who generally attend every meet up.
    For this Support Circle Meetup we will have to be sure that we will choose only those HVs who can devote time and can attend most of the S.C. meetups because this meetup is for a very genuine & good cause. For this meetup please make it compulsory that if a member can not attend the meetup for any reason he/she should inform the organizer in advance.

    1 · May 30, 2013

    • anjali d.

      Completely agree with manoj. come only if you are serious about participation and your contribution and in case you are not able to make it last minute, please send me an sms. there is no point putting your comment on the last day since it may not be seen/noted....thanks for your cooperation

      1 · May 31, 2013

  • anjali d.

    Please DO NOT RSVP for the sake of it....Do so only if you are definitely coming. Delete your name if you are not coming or even unsure. We are not looking at numbers, but committed members who are serious about this participation.
