Actress Sonam Kapoor wants to use her celebrity status to support social causes to give back to the society in return for the love she gets from fans.
We can live in ivory towers and give support and money, or tweet or talk about it, ‘but if we don’t know what’s going on at the ground level, then there’s no point. Your efforts become more effective when you are actually involved and know what’s going on,’ she said.
The 31-year-old “Neerja” actress is the ambassador of two NGOs working for welfare of children – Fight Hunger Foundation and Cuddles Foundation.
The “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” actress said it is easy to talk or tweet and rant about various incidents whole night but it is useless if you don’t do anything constructive to help those causes.
While the former promotes community-based approaches for the management of acute malnutrition, the latter provides nutritional support to underprivileged children afflicted with cancer.
“It is my responsibility to use my celebrity status for a good cause. If you’re born into privilege, it’s your duty to give back to society. I think working towards these things (referring to issues in society) is very important,” Sonam said in a statement. – CINEWS
