Ac­tor Sonam Kapoor (above) has of­ten been at the fore­front when it comes to rais­ing aware­ness about dif­fer­ent so­cial causes. Over the years, she has con­trib­uted to sev­eral char­i­ta­ble ini­tia­tives in some way or the other. Re­cently, the ac­tor did the same when she do­nated one of her favourite saris to raise funds for a hu­man­i­tar­ian cause in the USA. An in­sider says, “Sonam re­cently walked the ramp for de­signer Amita Bal in San Fran­cisco. It was a char­ity event. But her role didn’t end there. In or­der to do her bit for the cause, she do­nated a de­signer sari to a foun­da­tion that will now be auc­tion­ing it, in or­der to raise funds for the wel­fare of se­ri­ously ill kids.” The ac­tor had agreed to walk the ramp at the char­ity event, as the pro­ceeds from the show were also meant to go to­wards the foun­da­tion.

The in­sider says, “Sonam de­cided to give up her beige and gold crepe sari for the fund-rais­ing auc­tion.”
