The most common way of giving in vogue is to make a donation to contribute towards the expenses for one day or expenses for meals for one day by sponsoring annadanam (bhiksha). And a Puja to mark any significant event in the life of oneself or someone you care for – like a birthday, anniversary, upanayanam, vidyarambham, marriage etc. If you would prefer to make a partial contribution for annadanam, you are welcome to do so.
