Beautiful Bengaluru needs your support by helping with volunteers for its latest ambitious drive from 6-15August in what promises to be a milestone event for the city

Beautiful Bengaluru needs your support by helping with volunteers for its latest ambitious drive from 6-15August in what promises to be a milestone event for the city…. You are probably aware that the initiative was born in late 2015 after a few Bangalore-based alumni of XLRI Jamshedpur and IIM-Calcutta ended up with some excess funds and decided to use them, not for yet another social event, but something far more lasting – a social initiative for the betterment of our city! This initiative, with Namma Bengaluru Foundation as knowledge partner, invites citizens to ‘Be the change’ towards a more beautiful Bengaluru, with specific focus on making it clean, green, safe.



Beautiful Bengaluru has made a name for itself starting with its litter-awareness campaign during the January flower-show at Lalbagh, and continued drives on public responsibility to litter thereafter. Now we have set ourselves a challenging target – a litter-free Flower show this August at Lal Bagh, and for this, we need your support with volunteers on any day/s from Saturday 6th August to Monday 15th August at a time convenient to you.



We did have some success during the Jan16 show, and we believe it is possible to make a permanent difference with the right measures in place which have already been put in working tirelessly with the authorities… However to give this effort the final push to success on an already exciting journey, we need teams of volunteers present to reinforce a strong message of public responsibility to litter– litter must go ONLY in a bin. Volunteers in trademark Beautiful Bengaluru jackets will assist visitors in understanding which bins to use and interact to bring about a mind-set change that every person using a bin means a cleaner city, and every vendor using plastic alternatives means a greener city. Volunteers will be briefed on their role in advance.



Every added volunteer helps reach the goal of zero-litter. So PLEASE join us, families welcome (children will have a great time!) to support this unique initiative. Also please share this mailer with your contacts, and connect us with interested volunteers.

·        Please do join in on any date or shift of your choice.

o   Dates: Saturday 6th August to Monday 15th Aug

o   3 Shifts: Morning 9am -12, Afternoon 12-3pm, Evening 3-6pm.

·        To volunteer, please send a whatsapp message to 9820297951 or emailbebeautifulbengaluru@gmail.comindicating your name, date & shift preferred.
