How it all started

It began with Puneet, the Chief Creative Philanthropist, writing a children’s storybook – Deepa Wishes Daddy Happy Birthday – as a birthday gift for his then 3-year-old daughter, Ila. The vision grew into a movement based in love, which supports other children who do not have as many resources as Ila does. Puneet decided to commit all profits from the sales of his first book to support the education of underprivileged kids in his home country, India, and partnered with the first school. And now Puneet invites "Creatives" from anywhere in the world to give give back for social impact through Creative Philanthropy.

 
 

Who Is a Creative Philanthropist?

A Creative Philanthropist is someone who considers himself or herself Creative – in any manner. Someone who is keen to make a difference in the lives of children worldwide by giving back for social impact. In fact, we believe everyone is a Creative.

Our definition of “creative” is not restricted to the realms of artists and those traditionally considered creative, or those making a living off their creative talents. A Creative Philanthropist may well be someone pursuing creativity as a hobby for self-expression. Our Creative Philanthropists give back financially, or by doing hands on work or sometimes organizing fund raisers.
