Happy Rakhi!

Observed by Hindus and Jains, Rakhi is a festival which celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters. The sister ties a rakhi (holy thread) on her brother's wrist to symbolize her love and prayers for his well-being. In return, the brother offers a gift to his sister and vows to look after her. Traditionally, the brother and sister feed one another sweets.

This year, celebrate Rakhi with a charitable twist. Wear a simple white band and show the world that you want action, not just words, to make poverty history.
