Bollywood celebs are doing their part and are making donations to various relief funds and charity to help those adversely affected because of the novel coronavirus crisis. B-town stars are also not missing any chance to spread awareness about COVID-19 amongst their fans and followers or to raise money to help the one in need.
Recently, Arjun Kapoor went on a virtual date with 5 lucky winners to raise funds for daily wage workers of India who currently don’t have any source of income due to the nationwide lockdown. He did this noble deed through his sister Anshula Kapoor’s breakthrough online fundraising platform, Fankind. There he raised enough funds to feed the families of 300 daily wage earners for a month.
Stating the same Arjun said, “Coronavirus has thrown us all into unchartered territory. I’m grateful to all my fans that my 30-minute virtual date with five lucky winners for Anshula’s Fankind has raised enough funds to feed many families. Along with the funds raised during the chat, I have also extended some additional support to GiveIndia and this collective fund will support the families of these daily wage earners for a month. I felt happy to raise their morale and connect with people outside my circle & instill hope and faith within them. We must do our best in whatever way we can to help everyone triumph over this.”
The Ishqzaade actor has already donated generously to the PM-CARES Fund and Maharashtra Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CM Relief Fund), The Wishing Factory and Bollywood’s Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE).
Thus Bollywood celebs are becoming an inspiration to many to step forward and contribute on their behalf to help India fight the coronavirus pandemic.
