Arjun Kapoor will be going on a virtual dinner date with five people to raise funds for daily wage workers affected by the coronavirus lockdown. The actor has teamed up with his sister Anshula’s online fundraising platform, Fankind for the initiative, which is supported by the non-profit organization, Give India.
“There is a section of our country that has lost its livelihood and is in need,” Arjun shared in a video message. “Fankind, Give India, and I have come together to give cash in hand for daily wage workers below the poverty line. Give India has identified more than 6,000 families in India that need our help.”
The actor urged fans to log on to fankind.org/Arjun and donate. As a token of appreciation, five chosen winners will get to virtually hang out with Arjun around dinnertime on April 11. “I will be getting to know you, share a laugh, have a meal with you, and have a good evening together. Let’s come together to help those in need,” he said.
Besides this initiative, Arjun has also pledged to contribute to PM-CARES and the Maharashtra Chief Minister’s relief funds, besides partnering with other organizations like FWICE and The Wishing Factory.
