This time around Mirchi’s birthday will be about collecting toys for the NGO, Children Toy Foundation, whose aim is to educate children through play. Started in 1982 by Mr. Devendra Desai, Children Toy Foundation collects toys and organizes ‘Play hour’ for children at construction sites, slums, municipal schools and hospitals.
