If you are feeling unproductive or restless sitting at home this long, we have some work for you to do. Support small businesses and NGOs in your community that are trying to make a difference during this difficult time.
So, this month, our top mojoStores are not just online stores for you to shop from, they are Instamojo donation campaigns you can contribute to – from the comfort of your home.
5 Instamojo Donation Campaigns You Can Support from Home
1. Rise Against Hunger India
As you may have heard – supplies are scarce. Grocery stores are providing essentials to families but there are, unfortunately, many who cannot pay for it. People who depended on daily wages and children from destitute homes do not have access to clean food.
Rise Against Hunger India has been fighting the battle against hunger for years now. The organisation seeks to end hunger by providing food and aid to help feed school children, elderly and others.
For Thane residents: A smart initiative by the resident of Hiranandani association, the JWMF (Jab we met farmers) initiative seeks to promote farmers who are unable to sell their produce easily. The initiative helps increase aggregate orders of vegetables and fruits and invites farmers to deliver them in bulk quantities.
3. ZFM foundation
The ZFM world Foundation is stepping up to help those who cannot find help at this time – like the city’s rickshaw pullers.
With no customers, the rickshaw pullers do not have any means to make money. The world foundation has set up campaigns of different kinds on the Instamojo online store to reach out and help those in need.
4. The Nazareth Foundation
Run by Lawyer and activist Cassandra Nazareth, this initiative is to crowdfund and raise awareness about people who do not have access to groceries and staples due to the coronavirus lockdown in the country. The hamlets deep inside the Sanjay Gandhi National Park are most affected.
5. New Beginnings Charitable Trust
Since 2014, NCT has collaborated with over 11 NGOs in South India to assist women and children from social evils. During this social isolation, help NCT reach out to women who need help and children who are living in unstable environments.
Other Instamojo donation campaigns that need your attention:
Besides these, you can also support initiatives we have previously mentioned like:
Like Coffee? Support #CupofJoy:
The Indian Coffee Culture’s #CupofJoy initiative to save cafes from closing down during the Coronavirus lockdown. To make sure cafes and roasteries don’t run dry in the post-COVID world, Indian Coffee Culture has started #cupofjoy to help these businesses and YOU could be a part of it!
Care about CARE:
Support the stray feeders in Charlie’s Animal Rescue Center – let’s make sure everyone is fed at a time like this. The centre helps to feed stray animals that do not have access to restaurant and roadside scraps anymore.

Care is always in the need for newspapers and bedsheets which are used for various purposes all over the shelter. Our senior volunteer @ishaj22 put out an appeal requesting everyone to pitch in. We had 4 drop off points and we also had a pick up option for large quantities. Isha coordinated the whole exercise and as a result we now have sufficient newspapers that can last us the next 3 weeks. We also want to thank all of you who contributed to this. Please know that it made a difference. #careduringcovid19 #covid19 #animalshelter #animalrescue #charliesanimalrescuecentre
But they also need help with medical supplies, food and assisting the staff who are risking themselves feeding the helpless animals in the lockdown.
