New Delhi, Sep 5 (IANS) Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor was Saturday made the brand ambassador of a fund-raiser organised by NGO Khushii that will spread awareness about various causes like health care and child welfare. She said that she was "just the face" of the cause and everyone should do their bit.
"I am honoured to be associated with NGO Khushii (for the fund raising event 'Flight of Joy') and I appreciate the work they are doing for the welfare of people in different fields. I believe each one of us should come forward and support this event," Kapoor told reporters at a press conference here Saturday.
"It is not just about me, it is about everyone. No matter how much you contribute, but you all should contribute. I am just a face and can appeal to everyone to do their bit. It has to be a collective effort and we all should chip in," she added.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni was also present at the event.
"A moment of giving is much greater than a moment of receiving," Soni maintained.
Throughout this fund raising event, the NGO will spread awareness about various causes related to women, child welfare, health care, primary education, animals and environment. It will also give financial aid to other NGOs who are unable to raise funds for their organisations.
The fund-raiser will take place during the 'Joy of Giving' week Sep 27-Oct 2, when a combination of events and exhibitions will allow every citizen to contribute in their own way.
A balloon flying event will also be held on the lawns of India Gate Oct 11 where eminent personalities from different walks of life will support the event.
