EVENT RELATED

Why should I take part in a Those In Need event?

To make the world, at least around you, a better place! Our events are fun and creative ways to serve your community. In addition to the satisfaction of doing a good thing, event participants also earn TINstones and be a part of our ChangeMaker award. Talk about a win-win situation!

How do I sign up for an event?

Login to your account and click the events tab in the upper section of the home page, choose an event of your choice and then click ‘Join Now’! The event will now be added to your upcoming event list.

I can no longer do the event I signed up for. Can I drop out somehow?

We totally understand, it happens. We promise we won't hold a grudge if you join an event and aren't able to complete it. You don't need to take any action, though the event will still appear on your profile. If you are receiving texts about the event and want to opt out for just that event, just mail to us at info@thoseinneed.in.

Can I participate in more than one campaign at a time?

Yes. In fact, we encourage it. The more you participate, the more is the impact you create, thus earning more TINstones, and the chance to be recognized as ‘ChangeMaker of the year!’ (Read more about the award here).

How do I prove that I went to an event in order to earn the TINstones?

We trust you, but to have your feedback and see how the event went, we wish you to upload your selfies from the event. After logging in, go to the earn TINstones for the attended events section. Fill a small feedback form and upload your pictures. One of our team members will review your engagement and approve or raise questions within 48 hours, after which the stones will be credited to your account.

Do I need to pay something to be a part of the event?

Most probably not, but some organisations can have an entry fee according to their requirements.
