140 people capped off Hindu and New Year’s celebrations with a selfless act of giving during the blood donation session at Shree Swaminarayan Mandir, Kingsbury on Sunday 29th October.
In one of our most successful donation sessions, 35 new donors did something amazing and gave blood bringing the total of new donors during our blood donation sessions to over 800 people. All in all the London mandir has collected a colossal 2221 units.
Regular donors have been the cornerstone of these heroic acts that help save thousands of lives. As Acharya Swamishree Maharaj explains “Dedicating one's life to the service of others is the truest celebration of a festival”. This was embodied by all those who attended the session in celebration of Diwali and New Year.
