Volunteer of the month - July

Toybank is happy to announce the volunteer of the month for the month of July - Seshadri!!!



Seshadri joined Toybank in the month of April and has been contributing to Toybank in many ways. Since he has joined us he has been a part of most of our event.
He has been our impact volunteer who has come for the play sessions in our Toy Libraries and play centres and has given us valuable feedback and suggestions for the same.



It's been awesome to have Seshadri as a volunteer with Toybank, and we hope to continuous volunteering support from you.

We had a small chat with Seshadri, here's what he has to say:



Toybank: What brought you to volunteer with us?
Seshadri: I have a couple of friends in the MNC’s and one of them who is also associated with your organization, its through them that I got to know about your organization.
I had called it a day from the organization that I was serving to put in some work for society especially the children and Toybank has provided this platform.
Its actually my privilege to be associated with Toybank and all of you in this organization.
The last few months have given me immense pleasure & satisfaction which I could not probably experience in my 30 years with the public sector.

Toybank: What is your most memorable experience with Toybank?
Seshadri: Actually each event organized has been a memorable experience, it would be difficult to pinpoint any particular event as each one has something new to offer.
We have a lot to learn from the children and that’s what I look forward to every time.



Toybank: What do you think about volunteering in general?
Seshadri: Volunteering is something to be done selflessly without any expectations for it to be enjoyed to the maximum.



Toybank: What keeps you motivated to volunteer?
Seshadri: Every time we go to meet the children its an absolutely new experience & we do not know what’s in store, this “Expecting the Unexpected” is what I guess keeps me motivated.
Also I get to meet so many kinds of people from the educational field, the private as also the public sector as also people from the so many diverse fields.
It has been an exhilarating experience. Thank you Toybank.

Thank You Seshadri!!!
Keep Toybanking!
