GAP Diwali Bump Day Kit with Sai Sajja


Gates Asians in Philanthropy invites you to join us in celebrating Diwali!

Diwali is celebrated in India and around the world as the festival of lights. Light has a special meaning for Diwali – it represents the triumph of good qualities over bad qualities. On Diwali, we make a promise to think and act more positively, and to continuously learn so that we can live a generous life.

In India, Diwali is a treat for all the senses. Firecrackers bursting, lights galore, the laughter of people gathering, and the tempting smells of delicious foods wafting…it is an exciting time! 

This has been a difficult year around the world, including in India. We have lost dear colleagues, and our colleagues have lost many loved ones. We hope to fundraise for organizations doing great work in India, in remembrance of our loved ones and their legacies as uplifting members of our communities. We will be aiming to fundraise $6,001 through Foundation Cares, to be divided equally across the following organizations: Pratham, Child Rights & You, and Healing Fields Foundation.


As we wrap up and reflect on the year with gratitude, GAP invites you to join us on a special Diwali-themed Bump Day hosted by our very own Sai Sajja on Wednesday, 11/10 from 12pm-1pm PT, and also give support to India-focused non-profits that focus on education, healthcare, and child advocacy with a suggested donation of $50-- all eligible for the foundation's generous 3:1 match! We hope you will join us! Scan the QR code below to find our giving opportunity:



What’s in the gift box:

  • Sweet and salty goods – soan papdi is a traditional sweet and savory mixes are a great accompaniment (especially with a cup of chai). Please note that the food provided contains nuts.
  • Candle – In honor of Diwali (11/4), put up lights outside or around your home. You can light the candle from the box, as a representation of light removing all forms of darkness. If you like, you can also make a resolution of some way you wish to bring more positivity into your life and the lives of others in the year ahead!
