While India is battling with the pandemic, several film stars and cricketers have joined hands to help their country in these tough times.
A few days ago, former Indian skipper Sachin Tendulkar contributed INR 1 crore to boost the oxygen supply in his country. Last year, Tendulkar had also opened a plasma bank and urged the citizens to donate plasma and assist the needy through a social media post.
Recently, Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC) also shelled out INR 7.5 crores and INR 1.5 crore for covid-relief.
Actor Sonu Sood also continues with his humanitarian work, receiving requests from all corners of the Indian states for medical utilities.
Now, present Indian skipper Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma have come together to aid the victims of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Talking about the same on a social networking site on Friday, Kohli and Anushka revealed that they had donated INR 2 crores to a fundraiser started by them on Ketto.
The campaign #InThisTogether will run for seven days before the proceeds will be directed towards their implementation partner ACT Grants.The duo has encouraged the citizens to contribute as much as possible to help them achieve seven crores.
