We are the World Blogfest is here with its seventh edition. To spread peace, kindness, and humanity on social media, a few of us have worked together to create the We are the World Blogfest. In a world where news and social media are awash with negativity, we aim to turn the focus onto small but significant stories that renew our faith in humanity.
Be The Change That You Want To See In The World
Any small random acts of kindness are more appreciable than any big deed. The world goes around because of these kinder people. I really salute Padmanaban Gopalan and his friends for their kindness deeds.
Three young boys, Padmanaban Gopalan, Sudhakar and Dinesh from Coimbatore have won an international grant for their project, No Food Waste. It mainly focuses on collecting excess food from events and parties and then distributing among the needy.

Padmanaban Gopalan wanted to stop the colossal amounts of food that people are throwing away every day. In his 2nd year at college, he co-founded the green club at GCT. Read his full story here.
No Food Waste donates excess food to the needy. It was started in January 2015 with the goal to reduce food wastage. In the last two years, the organization has grown by leaps and bounds as it set up centers in nine cities. Their motto is ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’.

An initiative of city-based NGO, No Food Waste and local restaurant Kollywood Cafe, the first Sidewalk Fridge in Tamil Nadu to feed the poor was launched at R S Puram in Coimbatore. The fridge will allow the public to share excess food with poor people. All one has to do is to pack the food and keep it inside the sidewalk fridge from where the needy can take it.
